"Open The Books" has become a national rallying cry for transparency in public spending.

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, sponsor of the 2006 "Google Your Government Act," recognized our work, "Open the Books is doing the work I envisioned when the Coburn-Obama bill became law.  Their innovative app and other tools are putting sunlight through a magnifying glass."

Please contact us to help "Open The Books" on your state and local units of government. Our goal is to post "Every Dime. Online." of all government spending. Currently displayed are 1 billion lines of spending from federal, state and local governments across America.

Testimonials

U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, Sponsor of 2006 "Google Your Government Act"
"Open the Books is doing the work I envisioned when the Coburn-Obama bill became law.  Their innovative app and other tools are putting sunlight through a magnifying glass."

Pat Caddell, Democratic strategist | The Charleston Meeting
"Adam (Andrzejewski) just explained what I’ve been waiting for someone to do which is just how corrupt all of this is in this country- top to bottom."

Jim Harper, Cato Institute, Washington D.C.
"The Open the Books app is on the cutting edge of government transparency. As government data becomes more available, apps like Open the Books are going to produce the public oversight of government we badly need."

American Spectator, Teresa Mull
"This just may be the smartest thing smart phones have produced yet."
