The data on the Iowa Checkbook does not include transactions associated with the Legislative or Judicial Branches, nor does it include transactions that occur outside of the central accounting system, such as payments made by the Board of Regents’ Institutions, Community Based Corrections, Community Colleges, and Area Education Agencies. It also excludes transactions associated with the Consumer Fraud Refunds fund and the DOT Clearing Account fund. This data is available in other datasets. Some data has also been redacted to ensure confidential or sensitive data protected by State (e.g. Iowa Code Section 22.7 or other applicable Iowa Code section) or federal law (e.g. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Social Security Number Protection Act, and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) is not included. The data also excludes payments details for some expenditures which are only recorded in a summary in the central accounting system such as Medicaid, IPERS, unemployment compensation, and tax refunds.
