The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts' Transparency Stars program recognizes local governments for going above and beyond in their transparency efforts. The program recognizes government entities that accomplish the following:

  • Open their books not only in their traditional finances but also in the areas of contracts and procurement, economic development, public pensions, and debt obligations; and
  • Provide clear and meaningful financial information not only by posting financial documents but also through summaries, visualizations, downloadable data, and other relevant information.
