Regarding your current website:
 When did you start your transparency website?
Our Web site was first brought on-line around 1996.
 Who is the target audience?
Our Web site was initiated to provide the public with an alternative manner in which to receive our audit reports
(alternative to e-mail or hard copy).

See answer above.
 Where is the source of the data?
Our Web site contains our published audit reports and the reports issued to local entities by local CPAs within

No. No. See above.
Regarding the future:

Our Web site meets our needs. It provides access to audit reports. It does not provide data.

I do not think this would apply to our content.
 Are there any limitations to your ability to achieve what you’d like to see (ie. statutory changes,etc)?
See answer above.
