CFO Jeff Atwater asked..."How can we assure that those we have elected to be watchful stewards of state dollars fulfill that promise when we can't even measure where we are? How can we strive to get better?"
Our CFO has worked hard with our Florida Legislature to answer these questions. In a recent email he sent out to email subscribers he said..."These are important questions considering that our state's budget is measured in billions of dollars annually and nearly $50 billion, or approximately 56 percent of the state budget, is spent on contracts and agreements for goods and services. Because of this reality and under the direction and guidance of the Legislature, (amended Section 215.985, F.S. in 2011), my office developed the Florida Accountability Contract Tracking System or 'FACTS,' which we launched this week, a comprehensive online tool that offers Floridians greater visibility into how their government is doing business. For the first time, FACTS makes the state's contracting processes transparent through a centralized, statewide contract tracking system."

""Government growing beyond our consent had become a lumbering giant, slamming shut the gates of opportunity, threatening to crush the very roots of our freedom. What brought America back? The American people brought us back -- with quiet courage and common sense; with undying faith that in this nation under God the future will be ours, for the future belongs to the free." Ronald Reagan (State of the Union Address 2/4/86)
