NCRTD IMPLEMENTS WEB-BASED FINANCIAL TRANSPARENCY PLATFORM
ESPAÑOLA – The North Central Regional Transit District (NCRTD) has implemented a web-based financial transparency and accountability platform on its website at http://www.ncrtd.org/opengov.aspx in order to meet its commitment to clear and open government.
Valley Daily Post reporters experimented with the system and it seems easy to use, with tutorials available to teach users how to find the data they are seeking.
The NCRTD has contracted with OpenGov to create an interactive reporting tool that allows the public to explore the District’s financial data online in easy-to-use graphical formats that can be selected and customized by the user. The system provides historical financial data from 2010 to the current year that can be analyzed on a monthly or annual basis and allow users to review data ranging from finite details to big picture. The system will provide details on expenditures and revenues, allowing visitors to break out everything from salaries, capital expenses, employee benefits, fuel expenses, contractual services, vehicle maintenance, insurance and more.
OpenGov can be used internally to create custom reports, help operations manage to budget, keep administrators and legislators informed, and help with important workflows from the budgeting process to internal audits. Externally, the platform is used to publish interactive budgets, share information with the community, and even achieve revenue goals by disseminating important financial data.
“The NCRTD Transparence and Accountability platform furthers our Board of Director’s goal of having the District be looked up to as being among the most transparent government agencies in the state,” stated NCRTD Executive Director, Anthony Mortillaro.
