Reports on Public School Districts

On May 27, 2009, Governor Charlie Crist signed the Transparency Florida Act into law. This legislation requires the governor's office to develop a website to provide information on every appropriation found in the General Appropriation Act for each branch of state government and state agency. The data must include at a minimum:

  • Expenditures
  • Appropriations adjustments
  • The status of spending authority for each appropriation
  • Position and rate information on state employees

The website will be overseen by the Joint Legislative Auditing Committee, which will also propose additional phases of information to be made available. The committee will submit a proposal to the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate by March 1, 2010 which will include a schedule of additional phases of information by the type of information to be provided for specific governmental entities, including local government units, community colleges, state universities and other government entities that receive state appropriations.
