SAO’s newly redesigned Financial Intelligence Tool (FIT) now offers easier access to financial data for nearly 2,000 local governments

Aug 24, 2023

Those familiar with the Financial Intelligence Tool (FIT) from SAO’s Center for Government Innovation know it has plenty of horsepower: It includes a decade’s worth of financial data for nearly 2,000 local governments, along with a ton of different ways to sort, filter and arrange this insightful information. (In fact, our Office is statutorily required to publish this data to the public and FIT’s how we do it.) 
FIT’s even better today, as we’ve redesigned it to better suit your interests and lifestyle. Here's just a glimpse of some of the benefits and new features of FIT today:  

  • Financial data at your fingertips: mobile-friendly design goes where you go 
  • You said, “Make it simpler” and we did – along with faster, more intuitive, and better organized 
  • Pressed for time? FIT’s “quick search” tool allows you to find what you’re looking for quickly and easily   
  • Find local governments in your area with the new “near me” feature   
  • Not sure where to begin? We’ve put together some pre-loaded templates to get you started, including our “FIT Focus of the Month”  

 Take FIT for a test spin and see what it can do for you!
