Financial Transparency

On May 27, 2009, the Transparency Florida Act was signed into law. This legislation requires the Governor’s Office to develop a website to provide information about every appropriation found in the General Appropriation Act, for each branch of state government and state agency. The data must include, at a minimum: expenditures, appropriations adjustments, the status of spending authority for each appropriation, and position and rate information for state employees.

The website is overseen by the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee, which proposed additional phases of information to be made available. The committee submitted a proposal to the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate on March 1, 2010, which included a schedule of additional phases of information by the type of information to be provided for specific governmental entities, including local government units, community colleges, state universities, and other government entities that receive state appropriations.
