Accountability and the Recovery Act

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act placed a major emphasis on accountability and transparency. In particular, the law required states like Arkansas track and report on where and how every Recovery Act dollar is spent. That reporting includes the name of the program or project being funded, its completion status as well as the number of job created or retained. In Arkansas, state government is complying with these requirements and has also decided to expand its reporting to areas not required under the Recovery Act. Arkansas’s state government is committed to accountability and transparency, and ensuring that every dollar provided under the Recovery Act is invested wisely and appropriately. It has adopted a reporting system that will allow taxpayers to “drill down” into programs funded through the Recovery Act and track the flow of funds into the state’s economy.
