Day Announces New Website to Boost Government Accountability, Transparency
12/31/2012
HARRISBURG - Working to make government more accountable to the citizens of Pennsylvania, the new PennWATCH (Pennsylvania Web Accountability, Transparency and Contract Hub) website was officially launched last week, said Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks).

“Greater transparency and accountability are important in making sure every tax dollar is used wisely, and that is why I authored and introduced a similar measure,” Day said. “When I learned of the PennWATCH version, I was happy to support it as it passed the House and Senate and was eventually signed by the governor.

“Getting these transparency measures in place help make government better, and in working cooperatively, you learn pride of authorship shouldn’t stand in the way in making our Commonwealth a better place,” Day continued.

Established by Act 18 of 2011, PennWATCH has all departmental and agency budget expenditures available online, including expenditure and revenue information; performance measures; agency websites; relevant employee data; and compensation information.

Any information made available on PennWATCH for a given fiscal year must remain on the site for a period of at least eight years.

Pennsylvania now joins dozens of other states in offering this information online.

The website can be accessed at http://www.pennwatch.pa.gov or on Day’s website at www.RepGaryDay.com.
