Press Release
The Senate has renovated and relaunched the Finance Committee Dashboard

Senate Speaker Hector Mujica and Senator Patrick O’Keefe have committed themselves to the full transparency for the student body.

Miami, Florida (28 February 2011) — The Finance Committee Spending Dashboard is re-launching this spring under the management of Senators Mujica and O’Keefe.

In the efforts of the SGC-MMC Senate to continue our Open Government Initiative and update the student body on its financial expenditures, the Senate has renovated and relaunched the Finance Committee Spending Dashboard, which is located and available to the entire student body on the SGA website. The new dashboard is user friendly and displays all of the information pertaining to each request.

To access the new Finance Committee Spending Dashboard, please visit: http://go.fiu.edu/ae8

Finance Committee Chairman O’Keefe has reassured the Senate that the committee will maintain the dashboard and update it on a weekly basis so that the student body can be aware of the Finance Committee’s activities.

“After consulting with Speaker Mujica, we decided this would be the best way to continue full transparency for Senate and potentially a learning tool to groups prior to submitting a request for funds.” said Senator O’Keefe, “I hope that by combining advocacy with transparency, we can serve FIU students in the best way possible.”

“This dashboard displays our Senate’s commitment to procure fiscal responsibility and operational transparency to the student body,” said Senate Speaker Mujica.

It is our hope that the students will utilize this dashboard to keep us accountable. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Senate Speaker Mujica at hmuji001@fiu.edu.
