Transparency Efforts Recognized
About the Program
The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognizeLeadership-Circle-Multiple-Year-platinum_thumb.jpg local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online. They are spotlighting those local governments that are:
  • Opening their books to the public
  • Providing clear, consistent pictures of spending
  • Sharing information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information.

They are renewing this award program, effective January 1, 2011, with improved award criteria. The new criteria clarifies the definitions and adds a few new criteria to offer more options and reward those local governments that go beyond the basics of posting three recommended documents:
  • The Budget
  • The Annual Financial Report (or Comprehensive Annual Financial Report)
  • The Check Register

They are also recognized if they go beyond posting these documents in a user friendly manner. It retains the key qualities which have made the first year of this program so successful, simplicity, fairness to all applicants, the free, self-scoring nomination system, and ease of use for both applicants and our staff. They award Leadership Circle recipients with a certificate reflecting their Circle Award level, Gold, Silver or Bronze. This year the Texas Comptroller is enhancing the Leadership Circle program by spotlighting entities that meet an even higher standard of financial transparency by adding the Platinum Award level.
