The City of New Bedford is committed to providing citizens with open and transparent government that ensures the highest level of trust.  The Open Checkbook project provides a sortable database of departments’ vendor activity by quarter, and is intended to foster a culture that increases accessibility and encourages collaborative discourse.   Accountability and integrity are core values of the New Bedford Way, and both contribute significantly to our ongoing commitment to bring government closer to its citizens.

This searchable database provides information regarding payments by the City to outside vendors from the cities budgeted funds. Benefits payments and reimbursements to individuals are not shown for privacy reasons.
