Government Spending, iPad Edition

Government Spending, iPad Edition

 

Description

Have you ever wondered about how the government spends your tax dollars or have you looked for specific information on government spending. This application provides information for every dollar spent on US federal government contracts in the past 10 years.

This app requires internet connectivity. It queries (regularly updated) federal government servers to provide the latest spending data.

Features:

1. Detailed Spending data including spending numbers, trends, pie charts, line graphs, top purchases, top contractors.

2. Spending data for specific Departments (e.g. Defense Department, Education Department, NASA etc.)

3. Historical data (upto 2000) and current data (upto 2010) with continuous updates

The app will help the involved citizen who wants to hold government accountable for spending decisions and it will also help the casual user understand what the government is spending money on.

PLEASE READ: On Friday, May, 21, 2010, the federal government web-server started malfunctioning because of a software issue. So the app stopped working and just displayed an error message.

We escalated the problem and (over several weeks) worked with the Federal Government (Office Of Management and Budget) and the federal government contractors (who operate the web servers).

However, it took the government (and their contractors) several weeks to fix the problems. So the app either didn't work or only worked partially for several weeks

The app works great now. Apologies for not being able to get the government to fix the malfunction faster.

Where's the Pork?

:
I was hoping to see ALL the spending, not just department operating budgets. How much is paid out in Social Security, SSI, WIC, Welfare, Medicare and Medicaid. Please show all the spending because right now this app is totally misleading!

0/5 stars

Top App for Analysts

:
I'm a professional analyst in opportunity development for a major institution. This app could be very valuable for finding linkages to federal contractors and showing the spend priorities and spend patterns. The real difficulty with the app's information is not knowing the date and exact source of the data for report reference. MANY RECURRING PROBLEMS WITH DATA AVAILABILITY IS RENDERING THIS APP WORTHLESS NOW.
