Users can now easily view total figures for state expenditures, revenues and budget
Harrisburg, PA - Treasurer Stacy Garrity announced today that upgrades have been made to Treasury’s award-winning Transparency Portal, improving access to state budget and spending details.
Users can now see calculated totals in the portal’s Total Expenditures and 2023-2024 Budget, Augmenting Revenue, Revenue and Expenditures sections, making it easier for users to compare current figures with those of previous years. The upgrade also allows users to see further agency-level details.
“This latest update to Treasury’s Transparency Portal makes it much easier for users to see totals for many budgetary items. Increasing government transparency is always a top priority for me, and this is another tremendous step forward – giving Pennsylvanians an even better opportunity to see how every tax dollar is spent so they can hold their government accountable.”
Pennsylvania State Treasurer, Stacy Garrity
The Transparency Portal also includes tools to review state budget details, the Fiscal Health Scorecard, which presents financial data comparing Pennsylvania with similar states, and the Treasury Checkbook that discloses payments made by Treasury to its vendors. The Contracts e-Library allows anyone to review state agency contracts valued at $5,000 or more.
Treasury’s Transparency Portal includes data back to 2014. Since taking office, Treasurer Garrity has added numerous features to the site, including access to Ledger 5, which tracks unappropriated expenses, and the ability to see county- and state-level data about Pennsylvania’s unclaimed property program, the PA 529 College and Career Savings Program, Keystone Scholars, and the PA ABLE Savings Program.
Treasury’s Transparency Portal has won numerous awards, including the 2022 Government Experience Project Award from the Center for Digital Government, the 2018 CIO 100 Award, a Digital Edge 50 Award, and the 2017 PA Excellence in Technology Award. It was named a finalist for the NASCIO 2018 Data Management and Analytics Award.
