Payroll Database for Anchorage Now OnlineFeatured, Fiscal Policy, Recent News, Transparency — By jthompson on February 21, 2011 at 2:44 PM
The Alaska Policy Forum has launched a transparency website for the Municipality of Anchorage payroll. The website allows citizens to view payroll and benefit data for nearly all Municipal employees by navigating an organizational chart. The data provided lists the employee, the position title, bargaining unit, salary (includes overtime) and benefits.
“It’s important that citizens have all the information they need to make informed decisions about whether we are spending too much or too little on government services,” said Jeremy Thompson, Executive Director of the Alaska Policy Forum. “Not only should data be organized in an intuitive way, it needs to be organized in a way that depicts the structure of government. We wanted citizens to learn something about government structure when they use this tool. Transparency is a mix of useful information and a better informed consumer.”
The website is part of Alaska Policy Forum’s focus on government transparency.
