Washington gets yet another high mark

We say keep them coming, we can make room on the mantel for another award!

Washington state has earned a perfect score for website transparency for the second year in a row. This means Access Washington is one of the most open and accessible state government sites in the entire nation.

The A+ grade was awarded by the Sunshine Review, a national nonprofit organization focused on government accountability.

Washington is one of just of 10 states to receive such a high mark.

Head on to where you can find answers to numerous questions such as where to go for suspected fraud reporting, to how to renew your license, and where to get employment assistance, but you’ll also find names and contact information of elected officials and lobbyists, easy access to contracts and tax information, and information on ethics policies as well as the Washington Public Records Act.

Since its initial launch in 1998, Access Washington has won multiple awards for service, innovation, communication, quality and excellence.
