State and national recognition for digital transformation
Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Treasurer Joe Torsella today announced the acceptance of two awards honoring the Treasury Transparency Portal, a first-in-the-nation tool that allows Pennsylvania taxpayers to track how more than $100 billion in Commonwealth expenditures are spent.
The Pennsylvania Treasury received the 2017 PA Excellence in Technology Award at the PA Digital Government Summit and the Digital Edge 50 Award, a national award honoring organizations that excel in digital transformation.
"These awards are true testaments of Treasury’s commitment to building a blueprint for transparency in the commonwealth. The Treasury Transparency Portal has brought to life a vision of the highest standard of accountability, unparalleled by any other state. I’m proud of the work we’ve done, and look forward to continuing to shine more light on Pennsylvania’s finances."
Pennsylvania Treasurer, Joe Torsella
The PA Excellence in Technology Award recognizes initiatives that use innovative technology to improve the delivery of a government service. The Treasury Transparency Team accepted the award at the PA Digital Government Summit on December 7.
The Digital Edge 50 Award recognizes 50 organizations across the nation that deliver significant, measurable impact using innovative and complex solutions. The Pennsylvania Treasury received the award among Fortune 500 companies like Verizon, Exxon Mobil, Allstate and more.
Treasurer Torsella unveiled the Treasury Transparency Portal in February of 2017, as part of his ongoing effort to bring greater transparency and accountability to state government. Using the Treasury Transparency Portal, Pennsylvania taxpayers can track the past three years of commonwealth expenditures by department, find information about the General Fund, and see Treasury Investment Pool balances – all in real time.
