South Carolina checkbook registers

From Ballotpedia

Online checkbook registers refers to the movement to empower people to scrutinize and oversee government by asking that government agencies post their checkbook registers online in an easily accessible, searchable format.

Like an individual’s checkbook, a government agency's checkbook register will include a transaction number, a date, the name of a payee (e.g., a vendor or an employee) and a dollar amount. It also will include a budget object code and, usually, a short memo explaining the expenditure (e.g., “purchase of six Dell computers” or “travel expense reimbursement”).

The South Carolina Policy Council has published a chart detailing who had posted their checkbook registers:[1]
