What is Maricopa County OpenBooks?
Maricopa County OpenBooks provides the public with information about Maricopa County in a user-friendly website. It is a strategic priority of Maricopa County to simplify access to financial and budgetary data as well as information on a variety of significant initiatives. While this information has been historically available at www.maricopa.gov
, the goal of Maricopa County was to provide a central location to find information about how the County operates and bring additional accountability for the use of both tax and non-tax revenues.
Through Maricopa County OpenBooks, citizens can access available information about Maricopa County in one easy central location. In addition, Maricopa County OpenBooks was created in harmony with the Open Government Initiative
and Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S.) Section 41-725
Currently, the following information can be found at Maricopa County OpenBooks:
- demographic and organizational structure of the County, including contact and election information
- strategic plans and results-based reporting
- summary financial and budgetary data
- electronic versions of County contracts in a searchable database
- links to useful resources about the County, State, and National government
The second phase of the site will include a searchable database of detailed revenue and expenditures. Maricopa County will partner with the State of Arizona to provide this data through the State’s transparency site called Arizona OpenBooks
. Through this partnership, taxpayers will be able to access revenue and expenditure information from the two largest governmental entities in Arizona from one site.
