More about the financial transparency website
Launched a year ago, the financial transparency platform powered by OpenGov.com gives unprecedented access to the City’s finances. The powerful visualization software transforms volumes of raw financial data into actionable insight and information, enabling better analysis and understanding of the City’s budget.
Minneapolis residents and staff can explore long-term budget trends and quickly drill down into specific financial detail in an intuitive, user-friendly format. Residents can easily answer questions such as, “What did the City spend on capital improvement projects?” or “How has City spending on police changed over the past seven years?” and download or share the data on social media.
Visitors to the Minneapolis platform can access the City’s recently approved 2016 budget, compare it to previous years back to 2008, and instantly view revenues and expenses by fund, department and expense type on interactive graphs. The current year report provides insight into spending and revenues year-to-date.
