The Council takes this responsibility seriously, with over 30 committees conducting hundreds of oversight hearings each year on topics ranging from the state of the subway system to the erroneous lifting of deed restrictions on Rivington House. The Council seeks to build on this work through the establishment of an Oversight and Investigations Unit, which will work with the Committee on Oversight and Investigations to conduct complex, in-depth oversight into City agency activities and other important matters.

Financial Analysts will be responsible for critical, forensic examination and analysis of financial records and other data relevant to investigations conducted by the Oversight and Investigations Unit and will work with Unit staff to develop and actualize those investigations.

Demonstrated ability to analyze, assess and draw conclusions based on a multitude of complex documents, financial records data, and sources, including but not limited to internal communications, policies and procedures.
