Government Finances & Contracts at State Agency Databases Project

This week’s State Agency Databases Project subject highlight is Government Finances & Contracts, featuring 46 states that project volunteers know to have publicly searchable databases in this subject area. Three examples from this compilation are:



Financial Documents Delivery System – Provides “access to every municipal budget and year-end financial statement submitted” to the Division of Community & Regional Affairs.


Audit Search – Review the financial information of units of state and local government such as schools, cities, counties, etc., to see how Ohioans’ tax dollars are being spent.


Transparency database – This site allows you to search for expenses, revenues, and employee compensation for most levels of Utah government including school districts.
