Arizona's Official Transparency Web Site

Arizona OpenBooks

Get Started is the State of Arizona's official transparency web site, created in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) Section 41-725. It is a searchable, user-friendly public site that serves as a single point of reference for citizens to view information about the financial activities of the State of Arizona. This site also contains information for certain State of Arizona local governments, including: counties, cities, towns, community college districts, school districts and state universities.

A.R.S. 41-725 includes transparency requirements for local governments. Arizona OpenBooks provides a unique opportunity for the local governments to meet their statutory transparency requirements. Using OpenBooks to fulfill these transparency requirements provides the public with a single point of reference for Arizona governmental financial activities. Moreover, participation significantly reduces costs that would otherwise be associated with implementing and maintaining multiple transparency websites.

The Arizona Department of Administration is encouraging all local governments to leverage the State's transparency website by including their financial information on Arizona OpenBooks.
