As part of ongoing efforts to provide the public and university stakeholders with additional access to financial information, the California State University has launched a new financial transparency portal.
“The CSU is committed to ensuring that Californians know how resources entrusted to the university are managed,” said CSU Executive Vice Chancellor and Chief Financial Officer Steve Relyea. “To that end, the university strives to be transparent in all its dealings with students, faculty, staff, alumni, the community and businesses. This new portal will provide expanded access to financial information as well as additional context and detailed explanations.”
With the assistance of OpenGov, a leader in cloud-based government communications and reporting tools, the CSU has created the new portal featuring financial reports and interactive, easy-to-understand visualizations. Five years of actual revenues and expenses are available and can be viewed by year, campus and fund. The site also provides the public the opportunity to comment on the information presented, provide recommendations for improvement of user experience, or pose additional questions.
