The City of Tulsa has historically taken strides to provide open-record information to the citizens of Tulsa. Over the last several years, the City's website has received the highest A+ rating from the Sunshine Review organization for government transparency. In May 2013, the Tulsa City Council and Mayor of Tulsa adopted the Open and Accessible Data Resolution, with direction to provide more data online and work toward a higher level of transparency.
The goal of our Open Tulsa initiative is to take the existing work towards transparency to the next level. We will provide more information and data for public review, which is a broad movement nationwide. Tulsa's initiative is being closely watched because of the unique collaboration between City employees and Code for Tulsa, an official brigade of Code for America. These local civic technologists and the City have joined forces to identify opportunities to share data in easily accessible formats. This effort also is overseen by a public/private steering committee to develop goals and implement programs. In this first step, we have identified key public information that is readily available and posted links on this page to make it easier to find.
