PROVIDENCE – Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee has launched the second phase of the his administrator’s Transparency and Accountability Initiative, which is designed to provide the public with an “increased level of information regarding the operation and management of government, as well as ensuring the most efficient use of taxpayer dollars.”

The second phase of the Rhode Island Transparency Portal, which was originally launched in January, allows residents to view more data in an “efficient manner and user-friendly format,” said the governor’s release.

The R.I. Office of Digital Excellence developed three main additions to the portal: a replacement to the Open Government Checkbook with enhanced expenditures, Rhode Island state employee compensation data for the 2012 fiscal year, and reporting on the status of active loans from the R.I. Economic Development Corporation.

“The people of Rhode Island deserve the opportunity to hold their government and their public officials accountable, and the Transparency Portal is an effort to better support that process,” said Chafee in prepared remarks. “I firmly believe that greater openness and transparency will ultimately strengthen our citizens’ faith in their government, bolster our national reputation, and increase our economic competitiveness.”
