What's transparency all about?

This Web site is a tool to help you get to know your state government. Its purpose is to show you how government works, what your taxes buy, and how purchasing decisions occur. Don't let all the spreadsheets overwhelm you! A good place to start is the 2011-2013 budget. If you have questions about agency-specific information, contact that agency. If you have comments about or suggestions for additions to this site, e-mail us at oregon.transparency@state.or.us. More data is on the way.

New for 2011! Several House and Senate Bills were passed into law in the 2011 legislative session that added more information to the Oregon Transparency Website. Look to the left tool bar to browse the new information posted on Tax Expenditures, Education Service Districts, Oregon Counties, and Public Meetings.
To access historical information (previous years of Oregon.gov/transparency) use the links on the left toolbar for 2009 and 2010.
