VISION: "Every Dime. Online. In Real Time."

MISSION: Capture and post online all disclosed spending at every level of government- federal, state and local government across America. We’ve successfully captured over 3 billion public expenditures. We are rapidly expanding data in all 50 states down to the municipal level. Our goal is to map an additional 1 billion government spending transactions during 2016. It’s your money and you deserve to see where every dime is spent by your government.
