Data on federal grants, contracts and other spending is available in a searchable format on an interim Web site developed by the Office of Management and Budget in accord with the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act, which became law in 2006. The temporary site at www.federalspending.gov was launched to solicit feedback from the public on how to develop a search engine for the official Web site, which will be launched in January 2008.
Besides gathering feedback from visitors, the site includes:
- A copy of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act.
- The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act Task Force’s Implementation Plan.
- Answers to frequently asked questions about the new law.
- Links to current information about federal spending.
