Arizona Department of Administration Transparency Project

The League has been working with cities and towns on the Arizona Department of Administration's (ADOA) transparency project over the last several months. The project came about as a result of legislation passed three years ago that requires cities and towns, as well as other local governments, to post information regarding their revenues and expenditures. Because the ADOA had created a website to fulfill their transparency requirements from the same bill, the League created a partnership with them to take advantage of the work they had already done.

The League held a training last month to discuss the three options available to cities to comply with the new requirement as well as working with financial software companies used by cities and towns to create software upgrades to allow cities and towns to more easily provide their data on the ADOA website. The website is called Arizona Open Books. The user-friendly public site will serve as a single point of reference for citizens to view information about the financial activities of the state of Arizona. For more information, please visit
