Pension funds added to Ohio’s public spending website

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Financial information from Ohio’s five public pension funds has been added to the state’s online checkbook site, though the numbers aren’t all up to date.

State Treasurer Josh Mandel on Tuesday announced the launch of a pension section to the public spending website The website now includes more than $700 million in expenditures from the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System, State Teachers Retirement System, School Employees Retirement System, Police and Fire Pension Fund and the Highway Patrol Retirement System.

But the spending information from the funds is largely out of date. Only one, the State Teachers Retirement System, included expenditures made in the last year.

Mandel’s office launched the website in December 2014. It has since expanded to include some local governments, school districts and universities.
