New Data Released on FedSpending.org

On October 17, 2012, the contracts and assistances database on Fedspending were updated with information updated by the government as of July 17, 2012, covering a period from FY 2000 through part of the third quarter of FY 2012. The Recovery Act database was also updated with the latest information available, a set updated on Sep. 19, 2012, covering a period from Feb 2009 through June 2012.

On July 9, 2012, the Recovery Act database on Fedspending was updated with the latest information as of June 20, 2012, covering a period from Feb 2009 through March 2012.

On May 4, 2012, all three databases in Fedspending -- contracts, assistance, and Recovery Act data -- were updated with new information. Federal assistance data is now available from FY 2000 through the first quarter of FY 2012, contracts data is available from FY 2000 through the first quarter of 2012, and Recovery Act data for contracts, grants, and loans awarded from Feb. 17, 2009 through Dec. 31, 2011. In addition, we have updated our Fedspending server so that more frequent updates will now be possible.
