West Virginia Upgrades Financial Reporting


West Virginia has partnered with OpenGov to improve financial reporting between municipalities and state government.

OpenGov offers reporting and other budget tools. The partnership grew out of a five-city pilot project with the government of West Virginia.

“Aging technology and manual financial reporting processes have made it difficult to understand, collect, analyze and disseminate financial data between West Virginia cities and the state,” West Virginia State Auditor JB McCuskey said in a statement. “This initiative unites the state and its municipalities with a modern, easy-to-use reporting solution that will empower all involved to better serve our constituents and deliver optimal financial outcomes.”

West Virginia is already on OpenGov’s government cloud platform and provides the public budgeting information using OpenGov’s checkbook service.

This is the latest in a series of contract wins for OpenGov. The company recently announced a partnership with the State of Oklahoma to launch Oklahoma Checkbook and a partnership with the Idaho State Controller’s Office to launch Transparent Idaho.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
