January 6, 2015 – OpenGov

In an era of perennial budget cuts, university administrators became increasingly cognizant of enhancing transparency to alleviate misconceptions and resultant mistrust in university finances. However, the financial reports that were provided to university stakeholders through the university’s website were still static snapshots.
