Government Spending

Open and transparent data about how agencies allocate resources is a pillar that supports an accountable government. The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) of 2014 enabled access to information about how government spends $4.1 trillion annually, modernizing the way government spending information is collected, reported, and published. The DATA Act requires public reporting about how funds are allocated for grants, contracts, and other programs, providing a more comprehensive picture of how taxpayers funds are used to achieve agency’s missions and, in turn, maintaining taxpayers’ trust in government.

The Data Coalition continues to work towards integrating data-driven processes into government management and connecting federal spending data to programmatic outcomes.
