Equation for Open Government

Transparency begins by offering openness, communication, and accountability. Transparency in Local Government is described simply as open meetings + open records = open government.

Our Mission

The mission of the Parish of Caddo is to provide our citizens the highest quality service possible in a timely, efficient, and courteous manner. To achieve this goal, our government must be operated in an open and accessible atmosphere, be based on comprehensive long and short term planning and have an appropriate managerial organization tempered by fiscal responsibility.

Measures for Success

The following measures will be used to ensure we are meeting our transparency success goals:

  • Is data open and accessible?
  • Are parish government spending reports easily accessible?
  • Is the procurement process available and accessible?
  • Are all items crawlable / searchable?
