The state’s monthly and annual financial reports provide comprehensive information about where state money came from and where it went.
However, state taxpayers also have access to more granular detail about where state money was spent. For example, how much did the state pay a particular company to build a state road? How much did the state pay an individual employee in salary or a retiree in pension?
The Office of the State Comptroller now provides the most up-to-date state expenditure information – complete with an intuitive search function. This information – updated nightly -- is available below by clicking the "Open Checkbook" icon in the main menu. Specific datasets on salaries, pensions, contracts and grant payments are posted on www.trasparency.ct.gov and can be accessed through the links below.
