- About -  

 
 

Together, we are educating the American people by exposing and stopping the waste, fraud, corruption, and taxpayer abuse in government.


Our aggressive transparency and forensic auditing of government spending has led to the assembly of grand juries, indictments, successful prosecutions, congressional briefings and hearings, subpoenas, Government Accountability Office audits, administrative policy changes, federal legislation, and much more. 


Our works have been featured on C-SPAN, Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, The Wall Street JournalUSA TodayNew York TimesChicago TribuneForbes, NBC News, FOX News, CNN, and thousands of other national media.

 

We believe the open-government movement is revolutionizing U.S. public policy. We are the strongest voice in America for robust transparency and adversarial auditing of all public expenditures.


Today, we are the world’s largest private database of government spending.

We've already posted nearly 5 billion lines of public spending – including 22 million public employee salary and pension records captured from over 60,000 public bodies.


Our objective is to empower the American people with hard data and easy-to-use technologies. Then, citizens can finally exercise their constitutional right of government oversight – to hold the political class accountable for tax and spend decisions.


Let’s fight these battles together, locked arm-in-arm. Thank you for playing such a significant role in advancing the cause of liberty!
