Transparency Platform Empowers the City of Columbus
The OnActuate Transparency Platform has proven to be a transformative asset for municipal governments aiming to enhance transparency and communication with their constituents. The City of Columbus, Ohio, (the City) the 14th largest city in the United States, is a testament to this transformative power. Since its launch in late May 2023, the City has leveraged the platform to make data and information readily accessible through a secure online portal. Citizens now have the ability to access and download information spanning finance, contracts, employees, assets, and vendors.
“The interactive Transparency Platform allows us to easily share financial information and make public record datasets available to the public for download,” said Tom Noorkah, Director of Financial Systems, City of Columbus Auditor’s Office. “This helps the City modernize service delivery and increase access to public information. We were able to make these goals a reality with the help of our partner, OnActuate, and their expertise in public sector technology.”
“By embracing technology for transparency, government organizations like City of Columbus can build trust with their constituents, promote accountability, and foster a culture of openness and collaboration in the digital age,” said Sharan.
