Note from the Governor

Since taking office in 2011, one of our administration's top priorities has been to have a customer-focused, efficient and effective state government that provides Tennessee taxpayers with the highest quality of service at the lowest possible cost. We know that transparency and accountability are key aspects of those efforts. That's why we've created this website as a resource for citizens to learn more about our vision and goals for the state, how we're doing-both in terms of achieving our goals and how we stack up to other states-and where state tax dollars are being spent.

We have one of the best-managed states in the country, and we are always looking to make improvements. Our state departments continue to work every day to evaluate our progress, to look for innovative ways to manage resources, and ultimately, to make our state an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
