About this app

Search the United States Government checkbook since the year 2000: contracts, grants, loans, direct payments, and farm subsidies. 

The app also contains seven year salary histories and bonuses for 2.2 million disclosed federal employees, state checkbooks in at least 16 states, and public salaries from 36,000 local units of government across America.

Hyper-localize all federal spending by using your current GPS location, setting a custom location by zip code, or search by a vendor name or employee's last name.

See state checkbook spending: 1. choose a target state on the ‘state checkbook fly wheel’ of the app; 2. if you live ‘out-of-state,’ then change your location by keying any ZIP code within the target state.

See salaries from 36,000 units of local government across America by your current location (as determined by GPS) or keying in a ZIP code.

American Transparency is a 501(c)3 non-partisan, non-profit organization. Visit our website at www.openthebooks.com.

The need for transparency has never been greater. Americans have never been more willing. Now is the time to stand up and be heroes.

Tried to setup an Acct, but it tells me my email doesn't match my password! I haven't even setup either so far, so how can that be?

Great app. But needs action point to send email to demand change from local and state officials.
