Douglas County Open Expenditures was designed using search-based navigation, with auto-suggest functions integrated into the search bar. The auto-suggest menu offers key words, and categories of site content to aid you in your search. This tool makes digging through mountains of invoices and payments as simple as a click.
As you begin your navigation, recognize that Open Expenditures will automatically default to the current fiscal year. Within this tool, you will also find data for 2015.
Navigation allows easy access to the payments by fund, department, division, expenses and vendor, with the further ability to summarize at a County level or line-item detail. You may also determine how you want to view the data in a format that fits your needs – in table, snapshot, pie chart or timeline (over time) format.
At the bottom of each page you may click on the "Get This Data on Socrata" link. This will provide you with the option to download the data for further analysis using your own tools, or view the data on our Open Data site with a suite of data filtering, sorting and visualizing tools.
