Open Government
This web page is one of the first steps in creating a more transparent and efficient government for Cuyahoga County residents and businesses. Every dollar we spend belongs to the public, and empowering citizens with information about how tax dollars are spent is not just good government, but is vital in restoring the confidence that many people may have lost in county government. Cuyahoga County obtains goods and services using three basic methods: 1) P-cards, 2) purchase orders and 3) contracts. P-cards and purchase orders are used primarily for supplies, equipment, and materials. Contracts are used for consulting services, construction, medical services, etc. Our first step toward more transparent government is to allow taxpayers to view purchase orders and contracts online. Our gal is to expand upon these initial steps, and allow for a more interactive experience, so that taxpayers will eventually be able to view more details, and enter search criteria for specific items of interest.
