US government launches IT spending data in a web based dashboard

The US government just lauched a IT dashboard to better track the spending budget. It is a great site to check out not only the data but also have the ability to subscribe a custom report through the rss feed or a manual download of the csv file.

It is very interesting that the government has taken the step which was expected from the government for past decade and only to be fullfilled now.

Even though the site is not as slick as many other executive dashboards it still is a step forward. Now it will be easier for local authorities to adapt such technologies for their departments as previously no one really understood why it is important to show the data in a dashboard fashion and how it can solve many mismanagement issues.
