Open Government Launched to Increase Accessibility, Engagement

Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President announced the launch of the new Open Government transparency portal at, designed to increase convenience and openness, provide more comprehensive budgetary information, and make the Parish’s website even easier to use.

“We want to be the most open and accessible Parish Government in the State. Our website has never been more transparent, easier to access, or easier to understand,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President. “Open Government gives people information that is already out there on separate departmental pages like: our budget, bid information, and public meetings information, but also newer, more in-depth information like our Checkbook — basically a monthly listing of our expenses. It’s gathered and located on one, easily accessible and user-friendly page. We hope everyone takes this opportunity to get plugged in to Parish Government.”

Open Government can be accessed at this link, or found under the heading Initiatives on the Parish’s website. A link to a video explanation of the page can be found here. Other items on the page include: Public Meetings information; contracts and purchases and Human Resources information.
