New data set published on CTHRU
In a furtherance of its commitment to transparency in government spending, the Office of the Comptroller of the Commonwealth is pleased to announce recent enhancements to its CTHRU platform.
The recent updates to CTHRU include a new data set for more than 190 non-budgeted special revenue funds and approximately 1,000 trust accounts with dedicated sources of revenue. The new data set dates back to 2005, and allows users to visualize how much is available each year in each fund or trust, compared to how much has been spent.
CTHRU is the Commonwealth’s financial records transparency platform. CTHRU offers an intuitive experience for exploring how and where tax dollars are utilized. CTHRU features state spending and payroll data, quasi government spending and payroll data, information on pensions, new hires, and more. CTHRU is available through the website of the Office of the Comptroller, at macomptroller.org/cthru.
