5 Ohio public universities post spending online


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A group of Ohio universities–including Wright State– is now posting spending information online for you to see.

5 of Ohio’s 14 public universities now display spending information on Ohiocheckbook.com. The state treasurer says they’re the first universities in the country to put their expenses online in a public database.

The five schools, include, Bowling Green State University, Miami University, Ohio University, Wright State and Central State.

Now, Ohio tax payers helping fund these schools can actually see where their money is spent. For example, at Wright-State–from last July till now– they’ve spent over $330,000 on architecture and design fees. That’s compared to Bowling Green State University’s $743,000.

On the site you can how much was paid for a specific expense, when it was paid and to whom. We first told you about the online database back in 2014. Since then, the Ohio State Treasurers office says it’s recorded 35 billion dollars in spending.
