PennWATCH is your window into Pennsylvania state government. Using the tools on this website, you can find in-depth information about the state budget and revenues, how that money is being spent and the results your tax dollars are achieving.
The Pennsylvania Web Accountability and Transparency Act was signed into law on June 30, 2011, providing for the establishment of a "searchable budget database-driven Internet website detailing certain information concerning taxpayer expenditures and investments."
The Governor’s Office of Administration led the creation and development of PennWATCH, which launched in December 2012. The website provides key data on all three branches of state government, as well as agencies that receive funding through the state budget. Data for these participating agencies is updated on a monthly basis, except employee compensation, which is updated annually. All agencies are responsible for the accuracy of their data.
