USASpending.gov is your source for information about government spending through contracts awarded by the U.S. government. The website is searchable and available to the general public at no cost. It contains a wealth of information for each federal award, including:

  • Name of the entity receiving the award

  • Amount of the award

  • Information about the award including transaction type and funding agency
    Location of the entity receiving the award

  • Unique identifier of the entity receiving the award

At USASpending.gov, you can perform a great deal of research about federal contracts:

  • Search the spending of different government agencies, contract recipients, and by location

  • Browse federal spending trends

  • Search subcontracting data and awards

  • Search for government contracting opportunities

The website was launched in 2007 to fulfill requirements of the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA). This act required the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to establish a single, searchable website, accessible to the public at no cost, providing information about government spending.
