This study attempts to build an index to measure accounting transparency at the central government by examining the current financial statement of various departments. It also discusses on how to utilize the index at the central and local governments. Enhancing the governmental accounting transparency would be helpful in increasing the utility of financial statement of the government. And thus, measuring the accounting transparency would be the first step to enhance the utility of governmental accounting system. This study finds that the use of index to measure accounting transparency at the government sector is rarely seen, in part due to recent introduction of accrual basis accounting system. By employing criteria which are used by the Board of Audit office, this study attempts to build index to measure government accounting transparency. It appears that the index measures the transparency level quite satisfactorily, and with minor changes in the future, the measure could be used to measure transparency level at the local government setting as well. In that sense, the measure is expected to help improve governmental accounting transparency overall in the years to come.
