Public authorities self-report financial information in the Public Authorities Reporting Information System (PARIS), an online data entry and collection system. They use PARIS to comply with various statutory and regulatory requirements. The Office of the State Comptroller does not independently verify the data that authorities enter. Data for years before 2007 was collected in paper form. Some of the data collected prior to the implementation of PARIS is available online and can be accessed through the Public Authority Information page. Data for authorities that have been dissolved, such as the New York State Theatre Institute and the Industrial Exhibit Authority, will only be available for years before dissolution.

For definitions of terms, see the Public Authorities Reporting Information System Glossary.
