The City of Pensacola Launches OpenGov, an Interactive Financial Transparency Platform
The City of Pensacola is happy to announce the launch of a new digital platform powered by OpenGov that provides residents, elected officials and staff unprecedented access to the city’s finances. The OpenGov financial transparency platform transforms complex financial data into an interactive, digital format that enables better analysis and understanding of the city’s finances. The platform may be accessed from http://cityofpensacola.com/2558/OpenGov
Currently, the platform displays the FY 2017 Approved Budget. However, the ultimate goal is that the platform will display the current operating revenues and expenses. The platform will provide more transparency, providing the taxpayer with a better understanding of the City’s finances. Users of the platform will be able to view trends over time and explore multiple views of financial data, including by fund, department, expense, or revenue type.
The OpenGov financial transparency platform has been deployed as part of the City of Pensacola’s ongoing initiative to promote and enhance public transparency in local government.
Beyond sharing information with the public, the City of Pensacola can also use OpenGov internally to create custom reports, manage operations to budget, and keep administrators informed. With today’s launch, the City of Pensacola joins a growing list of more than 1,000 leading cities, counties, state agencies, school systems, and special districts across the country that leverage OpenGov technology.
