Checkbook NYC 2.0 provides unprecedented access to view and track how New York City government spends its nearly $70 billion annual budget. All data present in Checkbook NYC 2.0 is available through the API, except for visualizations. Data feeds include Budget, Revenue, Spending, Contracts, and Payroll.
The API has 2 required global parameters and 2 optional global parameters in every request. Depending on the value used for type of data, there are additional optional parameters that can be sent. The XML formats will hopefully be fairly self-explanatory. Links are provided for documentation for contracts, spending, and payroll domains. The documentation consists of global parameters and domain-specific parameters. Sample XML requests and responses are included for each domain.
