During the first week of February, 31 more departments will add expenditures to Open FI$Cal, California’s financial transparency website powered with data from the FI$Cal system. That brings the total to 66 state government entities offering public visibility to how California’s taxpayer dollars are spent. All but one of the recently added departments have been transacting in the FI$Cal system since 2017 or earlier.
The Judicial Branch is the first 2018 Release department to take the Open FI$Cal plunge and is among the group coming in February. Later this year, departments that began transacting in FI$Cal since July 2018 may opt to include current fiscal year expenditures or start with FY 2019-20. Data is added to the system 60 days in arrears, so the public will see FY 2019-20 information starting in October.
