Governments at all levels — federal, state and local, are making major strides in providing access to financial data on open data websites. Every state has an “open checkbook” type website, and the Data Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (DATA Act) requires that the federal government improve the quality of their financial data reported on Do these transparency initiatives answer the questions citizens may have about their governments’ priorities, program performance and accomplishments, or focus for the future? Or can a citizen easily find a succinct, easy to read summary of spending and performance? Probably not!

The Citizen-Centric Report can be the mechanism in providing honest, direct, and simple information. It is a snapshot  of governmental financial and program performance. It is a four-page, visually appealing, plain-language summary report providing an array of valuable information.

Learning Objective: Learn how Citizen-Centric Reporting can help communicate financial and performance information to the public.
