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 and revenue information – searchable by fund, agency, department, line item and account. This information – updated nightly -- is available below by clicking icons denotated "live," below, or by clicking the "Open Checkbook" icon in the main menu.
This expenditure and revenue pages are the first phase of a project that will eventually provide the most comprehensive, up-to-date statewide financial information publicly available in Connecticut.
Several other pieces of state checkbook-level information – including salaries, pensions and payments to vendors, municipalities and individuals – will also be available in the next phases of this project.
In the meantime, such information is currently is posted annually at www.transparency.ct.gov which can also be accessed by category below.
