Welcome to the new and improved Contracts e-Library.
Transparency has been one of my biggest priorities since the day I was sworn in as Pennsylvania’s state treasurer. Taxpayers in Pennsylvania should never have to wonder how or where their tax dollars are being spent. The Treasury Transparency Portal allows taxpayers to track their tax dollars in real-time.
Now, users can search for state contracts using the Treasury Transparency Portal. With an improved search feature, searching is now easier than ever before. Users can also see total contract count by agency and calendar year.
The Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) requires agencies to upload contracts valued at $5,000 or more, dated on or after July 1, 2008 to the site unless the contract is otherwise privileged. While the RTKL entrusts Treasury Department with the responsibility to receive contract information and make it accessible to the public, the obligation to submit contracts and summaries in compliance with the law remains with the agencies.
If you think a Commonwealth agency has not properly uploaded contracts to our database, or if you have any questions or concerns about this database, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-252-4700.
Pennsylvania State Treasurer
Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) gave the Pennsylvania Treasury Department the duty to establish and maintain the online Contracts e-Library. The RTKL also requires certain agencies to upload all contracts valued at $5,000 or more, dated on or after July 1, 2008, to the Contracts e-Library unless the contract is otherwise privileged.
The Contracts e-Library, https://patreasury.gov/transparency/e-library/, represents a partnership between Treasury and these agencies. While it is a statutory obligation of each agency to upload contracts and make them available to the public, Treasury sends regular notices such as this to remind agencies of the contract posting requirement.
If you have any questions about the Contracts e-Library or need assistance in uploading a contract, please contact Treasury’s Bureau of Contracts at email@example.com or 800-252-4700.
Posting these contracts online is more than a legal requirement – it is a way to build public confidence in state government. It has been said that transparency builds trust, and I firmly believe that to be true.
Thank you for working with Treasury to increase transparency on behalf of the residents of Pennsylvania.
