About the Sunshine Portal

About the Sunshine Portal

The information presented on the transparency portal comes from numerous data sources, including the Statewide Human Resource, Accounting and Management Reporting (SHARE) system, the State Land Office, the Department of Finance and Administration, and the State Investment Council. SHARE is the state of New Mexico’s financial and human resource computer system. All agencies except the New Mexico State Fair use SHARE to account for all financial transactions. Human resource transactions for all state agencies are recorded in SHARE. Agencies that use subsidiary systems to capture more granular information on agency-specific data post financial transactions to SHARE using a journal entry. That granular information may be obtained from the agency that owns the data and the system in which it resides so long as it is public information and not protected by privacy or confidentiality laws. All payments for goods and services are reported in SHARE. Signed official copies of contracts for goods and services can be obtained directly from the agency contracting for the service. Payments for investment-type services are required to be made directly to the investment companies and can no longer be paid out of the revenue earned before the revenue is transferred to the state.
