On August 17, Marc Joffe of the Reason Foundation published an article on Making Government Documents Searchable and Machine-Readable to Improve Transparency and Accountability which states:

“In Florida, and nationally, Reason Foundation is working to improve the accounting transparency of state and local governments by seeking the mandatory disclosure of government financial documents in a machine-readable format, which would help eliminate barriers to data analysis and facilitate more robust independent policy analysis.

Having helped craft enabling legislation in Florida this spring, Reason is now working with academics, government officials and technology companies on the tall task of migrating Florida’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) to a machine-readable, and thus more accessible, format while also engaging other states on the issue.”
