Open Letter to Automated Decision Systems Task Force

The New York Civil Liberties Union joined partner organizations and individuals in a letter offering recommendations to the Automated Decision Systems Task Force, a body that was created by the passage of Local Law 49 in 2018 to bring transparency to automated decision-making systems in use by agencies across the city.
The Task Force is required to present the Mayor and ultimately the public with recommendations on identifying automated decision systems in New York City government, developing procedures for identifying and remedying harms, developing a process for public review, and assessing the feasibility of archiving automated decision systems and relevant data. The following letter makes general recommendations for the work of the Task Force as well as specific recommendations pursuant to Local Law 49. 
As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
