JMI Public Affairs Director Thomas Perrin, Communications Director Tanja Clendinen and interns attend the launch of Florida Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater’s Florida Accountability Contract Tracking System (FACTS)–a comprehensive online tool that offers Floridans greater visibility into how their government is doing business through a centralized, statewide contract reporting system available at www.MyFloridaCFO.com/Transparency.
“Florida continues to be a leader in government transparency, as most recently evidenced by the launch of FACTS. The James Madison Institute has long been an advocate of increased transparency and accountability for our government and elected officials, and JMI commends CFO Atwater on this great next step of making all state contracts available online and searchable. Florida’s taxpayers deserve to know how their money is being spent.” –J. Robert McClure III, Ph.D., President & CEO, The James Madison Institute
