Sunshine Review, a nonprofit organization dedicated to state and local government transparency, recognized with a 2012 Sunny Award for exceeding transparency standards for the content it provides to residents.

This is the third year in a row Phoenix has received the award, and is one of only 214 jurisdictions out of 6,000 reviewed to be recognized.

Sunshine Review uses a 10-point “transparency checklist” to measure government websites on what they provide against what should be provided.

Phoenix’s website was recognized for its proactive disclosure of information including budget reports, elected officials, public meeting agendas and minutes, and contracts and public records, as well as for the ease of use and availability of information.
