Illinois Open Gov
Illinois Open Gov is a transparency website sponsored by the Illinois Policy Institute. The site lists state employee salary, retiree pensions, and vendor information. The site states plans to include all state spending. 
As of 2009, Illinois Open Gov exceeded the state sponsored site for government employee salary information by also factoring in information about employee benefits and providing information about retired state employees.
The site also allows others to repurpose the data by providing it in downloadable file formats. It also hosts a forum for public conversation to discuss particular spending items.
