Shining a Light on Government Spending
The purpose of this Spending Transparency web site is to provide citizens with convenient access to details on how tax dollars are spent. With a few simple clicks, anyone can now view the spending of more than 90 state government units. We hope you find this web site useful.
If you have a question about an agency’s expenditures listed in this database, you can obtain the agency’s phone number(s) from a state government phone directory available at this link. Expenditures made by the S.C. Public Service Authority, the S.C. Education Lottery Commission, the S.C. Jobs-Economic Development Authority, and state-supported colleges and universities are not processed by the state’s central accounting system and therefore not available to be included on this website. However, public higher education institutions in South Carolina are required to maintain online check registers, which can be accessed through a central portal on this website by clicking here: Higher Education Spending Transparency.
