The New York City Comptroller’s Office recently completed an upgrade to its transparency website, known as Checkbook NYC. Now the comptroller wants to give the software behind the site to other state and local governments. The move is intended to create a community of users that would constantly add improvements and develop new features.

In this video, New York City Deputy Comptroller Ari Hoffnung talks about efforts to market the platform to state CIOs and the impact of transparency on government spending.
