October 1, 2012

On September 20, 2012, Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), along with cosponsor Rob Portman (R-OH), introduced the “Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2012” (S. 3600). If passed, the bill would expand the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (31 U.S.C. 6101) by disclosing direct federal agency expenditures and linking federal contract, loan, and grant spending information to programs of federal agencies. The bill would require federal spending data to be posted on the USASpending.gov website. This is a companion bill to H.R. 2146, the “Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2012,” introduced in the House on April 26, 2012. The Senate bill was referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs.
