Transparency is critical for state governments, which spend hundreds of billions of dollars each year on contracts for goods and services, economic development subsidies, and other expenditures.

Following the Money 2016, our seventh annual evaluation of state transparency websites, provides rankings of all 50 states on their progress toward comprehensive, one-stop, one-click transparency and accountability for state government spending.
