Core Public Capabilities

The core capabilities of a functional political subdivision in a free and transparent society include providing essentially all operating data in machine-readable format (xbrl), conducting systematic, valid and reliable performance auditing, and engendering and operating under a culture of Civic Virtue for both elected officials and their employees and the citizenry at large.
