City wins award for Web site transparency 

San Francisco received a “Sunny Award” for having one of the most transparent government Web sites in the nation.

San Francisco was one of 39 out of 5,000 government Web sites to earn an “A” for transparency, according to Sunshine Review, a nonprofit agency committed to government transparency.

Sunshine Review analyzes Web sites for information about budgets, meetings, elected and administrative officials, permits and zoning, audits, contracts, lobbying, public records and taxes. The group measures what content is available on government Web sites against what should be provided, according to Mayor Gavin Newsom’s office.

Since its inception in 2008, Sunshine Review has analyzed the websites of all 50 states, more than 3,140 counties, 805 cities and 1,560 school districts.
