Opening State Government to Everyone



Past, Present & Future

In 2009, through the approval of House Bill 2500, the state of Oregon enacted the Oregon Transparency Program and website legislation

The program created an open resource where Oregon taxpayers can easily access the details on how the state is spending their tax dollars and what performance results are achieved for those expenditures.

The Transparency Oregon Advisory Commission (TOAC) was launched to provide advisement on website content and information. TOAC consists of two (2) of each of the following: State Senators, Representatives, Legislative Fiscal Office, state agency and public members. 

The TOAC advises the State Chief Information Officer (CIO) on the creation, content and operation of the Oregon Transparency website, first launched in 2009.
