Portrait of Commissioner Jeanette M. Moy.

Appointed by Governor Hochul in October 2021 and unanimously confirmed by the New York State Senate in February 2022, Commissioner Moy brings two decades of executive experience transforming and modernizing public and non-profit institutions to her role as Commissioner of the New York State Office of General Services (OGS).

Over the course of her first year at OGS, Commissioner Moy has led transformational changes at the agency as it implements new programs aimed at improving the way New York State’s government operates, making it more effective, resilient, and responsive to the needs of the agencies, residents, and visitors OGS serves.

Under Commissioner Moy’s leadership, OGS established the State’s new Office of Language Access, which is ensuring New Yorkers with limited English proficiency have access to important government programs and services. The agency also created a new Division of Resilience and Sustainability to help OGS meet its statewide climate goals, which include converting its light-duty fleet to all zero-emission vehicles by 2035, reducing its greenhouse gas emissions 85 percent by 2050, and adapting OGS’s assets and operations to the increasing impacts of climate change.

OGS has also grown its Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business program to more than 1,000 certified and active service-disabled veteran-owned businesses. The agency has also completed New York State’s $15 million Regional Dredging Project as part of the State’s Lake Ontario Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI) and begun repairing and renovating the historic New York State Capitol’s Hawk Street Passage and Central Courtyard.

As a member of Governor Hochul’s Cabinet, Commissioner Moy has played an integral and active role on the Governor’s Prison Redevelopment Commission, which is focused on reimagining closed correctional facilities for innovative redevelopment opportunities across New York State. Commissioner Moy is also an ex officio member of the State’s Veterans Employment Task Force and was named as a member of New York State’s 250th Commemoration Commission.

Before coming to OGS, Commissioner Moy most recently served as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Public Health Solutions (PHS), an organization committed to reducing health inequities in New York City. During her tenure, PHS strengthened its corporate functions, developed new service models, and navigated operational and service response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioner Moy joined PHS from the NYS Office of the Attorney General, where she served from 2015-2019 as Chief Operating Officer. In this role, she led the agency’s effort to become the nation’s premier public sector law firm by overhauling statewide operations; modernizing its technology and infrastructure; and creating a comprehensive people strategy to identify, attract, develop, and retain the best and brightest legal and analytical talent.

From 2011-2015, Commissioner Moy served as the first Chief Strategy Officer at the Brooklyn Public Library (Library). During her tenure, she established the Library’s five-year strategic plan to address its aging footprint across 59 branches; developed dynamic programming and community spaces across Brooklyn; integrated services with public schools; and streamlined the Library system’s back-office operations. From 2008 to 2009, Commissioner Moy served as Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Policy Advisor in the NYC Mayor’s Office, where she led initiatives in customer service strategies, technology, benefits, and innovation. She managed initiatives to improve customer service across every City agency through performance measures and service level agreements, and technology. In addition, Commissioner Moy redesigned the operational processes for NYC311, New York City’s main source of government information and non-emergency services.

Commissioner Moy received her BA in Political Science and MS in Management from the University of Rochester. She is a proud native New Yorker, a daughter of Chinese-Trinidadian immigrants, and resides in the Capital Region with her husband and children.
