Omaha, NE –  The City of Omaha website now offers a detailed accounting of payments made to city vendors.

The city and county IT departments initiated the project in November 2015, to develop identical public reports for both Douglas County and the City of Omaha.  The City’s “checkbook” appears on the city finance department’s page. The link displays both the City and County payment records for all of 2016.  (https://douglasomahatechnologycommissionne.opengov.com/data#/13512/query=F49C60F267E7718D8C2F7A34AD8595DC).

“We pay our bills with taxpayer money and you deserve to know how your money is spent,” said Mayor Jean Stothert. “Transparency is your right and our responsibility.  This is another step to make government records easy to access.”

The reports can be searched by date, invoice number, the payee and description of the account, including street repair and resurfacing contracts, job training and workforce development providers, bond payments, health insurance payments, neighborhood grants and community service funds, TIF payments, and property demolition.  More than 50 types of accounts can be searched totaling $503,621,214,77 in 2016.  The funds are paid from all funds, including the General Fund.

A few legal-related accounts are not displayed due to confidentiality.

This month, payment records for January and February of 2017 will be added; new reports will then be added automatically each month. 

“DOTComm’s technical team did an excellent job designing and launching a format that is easy to navigate for all users,” said Mayor Stothert. 

Many additional financial documents and reports are already on the city’s website, including the city budgets (2005-2017), audited financial statements (2005-2015), and Capital Improvement Plans (2009-2021). 

Over the last three years, every page of the city’s website (cityofomaha.org) has been redesigned to provide accurate information, resources and provide a direct link to city departments and the mayor’s office.
