State of Arizona Office of Economic Recovery: Arizona Creates Flexible, Graphical, Stimulus-Funds Reporting Solution in Three Months
When the U.S. Government granted billions of dollars in economic stimulus funding in early 2009, every U.S. state that received funds had about six months to create a solution for reporting on stimulus-fund spending. The State of Arizona worked with InfoStrat, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, to implement Microsoft Stimulus360, and had its reporting system up and running in just three months, ahead of the deadline. By using Stimulus360, Arizona has been able to automate the submission, integration, and graphical presentation of thousands of financial transactions. It can also accommodate federal and state policy changes as they arise. By displaying Stimulus360 reports on a public website, Arizona is providing complete financial transparency.
