Checkbook allows you to search the state check register, track state spending, and see where your tax dollars are spent.
The Checkbook Dashboard contains five visualizations:
- pie chart showing the top expense types
- bar chart comparing the last ten fiscal years of spending
- largest expense types - top twenty list
- highest paid companies - top twenty list
- table containing detailed fiscal year spend amounts by agency, fiscal year, account and fund
You can narrow the contents of the visualizations on the dashboard by selecting various filters found across the top of the page. The contents in each filter are as follows:
- Agency provides a list of State agencies and universities in alphabetical order.
- Expense Type provides a list of expense types in numerical order. The range for expenses is the ‘500000’ – ‘700000’ series.
- Fund Description provides a list of funds in numerical and alphabetical order.
- Vendor Name provides a list of vendor names in numerical and alphabetical order.
Filters are limited to show the first one hundred options in the list. Not all options are shown.
To set a filter, left click on the filter box of your choice. A list of options will appear for that filter. Left click on the box next to the option you would like to see. You may select more than one option.
If you don’t find the desired option in the filter list, use the Search feature to find specific options. Click in the Search box and type in a key word found in the options list. When you are finished typing, the list will contain all the options with the key word you entered.
Use the scroll bar to move up and down the list. Select multiple boxes to achieve the results you desire.
Click the OK button to set the filter.
The visualizations will change based on the filter you selected. If no information is returned on the visualizations, the filter value(s) selected contain no information.
