USAspending.gov is a public-friendly Web site that provides details regarding each Federal award, such as: the name and location of the entity receiving the award, the amount of the award, funding agency for the award, etc. Additionally, the IT dashboard Web site, which is a part of USAspending.gov, provides details of Federal Information Technology (IT) investments and is based on data received from agency reports to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The ability to look at contracts, grants, loans, Information Technology investments, and other types of spending across many agencies, in greater detail, is a key ingredient to building public trust in government and credibility in the professionals who use these agreements. USAspending.gov visitors will be provided opportunities to provide feedback in the spirit of the President’s open government and transparency initiative. Examples of feedback mechanisms are: (1) A ‘‘Contact Us’’ entry page with an optional contact e-mail address for those visitors wishing to identify themselves on the USAspending.gov Web page, (2) A ‘‘Contact Us’’ entry page with a contact e-mail address on the IT dashboard Web page; and (3) A Collaborative Work Environment using wiki Web pages, email discussion forum, message archive, shared file workspace, full text search capability, etc. Additional feedback mechanisms may be placed in the future but additional details have not yet been defined regarding them.
