By clicking on the categories above, you can review state government spending, salaries of individual state employees, financial publications and reports, the state's checkbook, contracts, budget, tax expenditures, and a variety of other financial information. Much of this information is linked directly to the state's accounting and payroll systems, so the data provided is constantly updated.

OPEN SD is a useful and easy way for you to get the information you need and want about your government. If you have ideas on how we can improve OPEN SD, please provide us with Feedback.
