In support of the university’s commitment to transparency and accountability, and in compliance with Arkansas Code 6-61-137, OpenUA was created to present a searchable database of expenditure records. It contains expenditure records for the University of Arkansas and other entities of the University of Arkansas System whose accounting records are maintained on the Fayetteville campus. They include the (Division of Agriculture) Agricultural Experiment Station, Arkansas Archeological Survey, Criminal Justice Institute, Clinton School of Public Service and System Administration.

Arkansas Code 6-61-137 requires the presentation of expenditure data starting with the 2012 fiscal year, until ten (10) years of expenditure data is available, after which at least ten (10) years of expenditure data will be presented. Data is available here for the February 2014 to June 2020 date range. In July 2020, the university implemented Workday as its system of record for human capital and financial management, including payroll, accounting, position management and budgeting.  With the implementation of Workday across the UA System, the Open Checkbook data for the University, along with other UA System institutions, is now available at UA System Open Checkbook for July 2020 and beyond.
