Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka on Monday announced a revamped state website with new features aimed at easing public access to financial records and reports.
The revamped site is at www.ioc.state.il.us. “This new site gives our office a virtual facelift,” said Topinka, who took office in January. “This upgrade will make it easier for taxpayers to access information, and prove to be an invaluable tool for improving the efficiency, transparency and accountability of state government.”
The changes are designed to provide easier access for those looking for state contractor information, political contributions made by those doing business with the state, and updated state financial information, including debt levels, bond ratings and fund balances.
