Open Checkbook and Financial Statements
In 2011, the 88th General Assembly of the Arkansas Legislature enacted legislation, codified as Arkansas Code 6-61-135, that required state-supported Institutions of Higher Education to present expenditure data on a website operated by each institution. The Arkansas Archeological Survey is an independent unit of the University of Arkansas System. The Survey is funded by grants and contracts and by General Revenue Funds and General Improvement Funds appropriated by the Arkansas General Assembly to the University of Arkansas Fund. The Survey’ accounting records are maintained by the University of Arkansas Fayetteville. These are available for public scrutiny at http://openua.uark.edu. In addition, financial statements for the UA Fund are available on the University of Arkansas System’s website.
