Treasury Department Launches New Spending Data Website
The United States Treasury Department recently launched an
open beta version of its new
website for tracking government spending. The Department is asking users to
provide feedback on demo versions of new search tools, including live filters,
SQL search, and a search builder using drop-down menus to filter on specific
fields. The idea is to determine what kinds of functionality users want and to “add
new features and functionalities on a rolling basis.” The new site will also
allow users to make charts, graphs, and maps from their search results. The
final version is scheduled to go live in May 2017. Until then, the Department’s
original website for spending data is still available here.
