Financial Transparency

Pasco County is committed to honest budgeting,
responsible spending and financial transparency.

In this spirit, Pasco has partnered with OpenGov to provide residents and stakeholders with the Financial Transparency Portal. The portal is designed to bring visibility, openness, and accountability to our operations.

Transparency portal overview

This site provides you the opportunity to view, filter and analyze revenue, expense and balance sheet financial data for Pasco. You can even download the data (i.e. in Excel) for offline analysis. Pasco County's Office of Management and Budget calculates the net budget by subtracting out the interfund transfers from the gross (or overall) budget.
