Agency Performance Dashboards

Governor Walker believes government must be efficient, effective and accountable to best serve the citizens of Wisconsin. In 2012, Governor Walker launched OpenBook, a website that allows the public for the first time to search every state expenditure. Now Governor Walker has taken this next step to increase government accountability by requiring each major state agency to report publicly on its performance through dashboards on this website.
