Abstract and Keywords

This article reports the comptroller in New York State. The comptroller's office is a venerable institution of state government. New York State's comptroller is unique and possesses a much wider range of responsibilities than its counterparts in other states. Between 1915 and 1938, the most important change in the comptroller's authority came with the creation of the New York State Employee Retirement System in 1920. The functions, roles, and stresses of agency head, sole trustee, retirement administrator, chief fiscal officer, state auditor, local government audits, chief procurement officer, chief accountant and additional fund administrator are then evaluated. The concentration of responsibilities of the New York State comptroller offers the comptroller a unique view on the nexus between the public and private sector in New York State.

Keywords: comptroller, New York State, agency head, sole trustee, retirement administrator, chief fiscal officer, state auditor, chief accountant, chief procurement officer, local government audits
