Avoid the high cost of financial public records requests by making all vendor payements available on your website with an easy to use inquiry interface.
“A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
letter to W. T. Barry
August 4, 1822
Get ahead of the curve!
From the federal government on down, citizens are demanding more financial transparency. It's becoming the norm for governments to have spending detail - budgets, revenues & expenses, and even payroll expenses - available on their websites. If it's not there, the public starts to wonder, "What are they hiding?"
Imagine the effect on public confidence when you post the data before there's a general outcry.
Open Government: Financial Transparency is a web service provided by e-City Services in partnership with VisiGov that can take the burden off your staff and allows unlimited access to financial data that was now gives your citizens, your elected officials, your staff and the press an easy way to find out how and where their tax dollars are spent.
