JOB TITLE: One (1) Assistant Director



The Mayor’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is the City government's chief financial agency. OMB's staff of analysts and experts assembles and oversees the Mayor’s expense and capital budgets, which fund the services and activities of approximately 70 City agencies.

This Task Force works with all agencies, with an emphasis on the large infrastructure agencies such as the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), Health+ Hospitals (H+H) and the Department of Design and Construction (DDC).

This Task Force is also responsible for managing the Charter-mandated City of New York Asset Management (AM) Program, and for reporting on the condition of major City assets for all agencies annually.  This involves directing the performance of approximately 1,100 asset condition surveys by architects and engineers each year, and the integration of this data into the Asset Information Management System (AIMS), resulting in two annual citywide publications.

The Value Management Director of the Technical Services Task Force will oversee the Value Management Unit and its associated Contract Administration Unit and the Asset Management Program.  Through management of these units the Value Management Director will develop, monitor and maintain consultant contracts for provision of Value Management Services to benefit numerous major city agencies with complex expense and capital portfolios and will play a critical role in the evaluation and coordination of citywide initiatives and capital project development.
