* Entity has been deemed ineligible for a Transparency Star in this area due to not having an adequate level of entity-specific financial or decision-making information applicable to this area. Each Transparency Star is representative of transparency excellence in a specific function or service area. If a unit of government does not provide a particular service or perform that function, our office cannot evaluate excellence in that area. This applies to Stars other than the Traditional Finances Star. For example, due to limited independent decision-making, entities participating in statewide or other non-single employer defined benefit plans are ineligible for the Public Pensions Transparency Star. Likewise, entities without any outstanding debt are ineligible for the Debt Obligations Transparency Star. The absence of a Star does not indicate a lack of transparency in that particular area.
