1 AGA Annual Conference, Atlanta GA Implementing a Full- Featured Federal Spending Management and Reporting System Presented by: Paul Murphy, President, Eagle Eye Publishers July 27, 2008

2 2 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Brief Eagle Eye Project History Provide all contract data for USAspending.gov 2007 – present (18 million contract records / month, 35GB) 23 years of FPDC/FPDS-NG electronic data processing 10 years of CFDA Data Processing Created first comprehensive FPDC database for desktop computers in 1988 Created commercial online contract and grant transaction reporting system in 1997 Created contract and grant reporting system for the US House of Representatives in 1998 Upgraded to processing FPDS-NG data for commercial clients in 2004 Extensive data analysis for SBA, commercial clients

3 3 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED How Far Weve Come: FPDC (FY02) vs. FFATA Contracts (FY07) Number of transaction records up from 500,000 in FY 2002 to 3.9 million in FY Last update contained 18 million contract records FY00 - FY08. Total number of contracts up from 229,298 in FY 2002 to 1.5 million in FY 2007 Rapid transaction count growth primarily a result of large increases in reported small purchases Total dollar value of contracts up from $262 billion in FY 2002 to $436 billion in FY 2007 Total number of active vendors up from 86,038 in FY 2002 to 201,642 in FY 2007 Improved currency: quarterly updates then, now monthly updates

4 4 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Ongoing Contract Data issues Obligation records only, no expenditure data Prime contracts only, no sub-contracts Data consistency (obligations vs. expenditures... vs. budget?). Leads to discussion of data collection process, managing multiple, large data streams. Certain key fields called for explicitly in FFATA not yet widely available (program source – 250K so far) Unique parent company identification, roll-ups Overall data cleanliness much better, but certain data fields still problematic (Place of Performance geographic fields, Agency/Purchase Office Codes with no references, inconsistently formatted Funding Agency codes) Many fields incompletely or inconsistently reported (NAICS)

5 5 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED FFATA Calls For Expenditure Data

6 6 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Ongoing Grant Data issues Switch to FAADS+ improving grant data quality Obligations only, no sub- and sub-sub-grant expenditure data Need to work with agencies to generate more FAADS+ data Need standard market descriptors Need parent organization references like in contracts Source: Eagle Eye Publishers & usaspending.gov

7 7 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Software Issues Need for speed in the update process Need a robust software & data platform to fulfill terms of FFATA Need robust analytics to fulfill management & public accountability requirements

8 8 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED FFATA Calls For A Searchable Web Site

9 9 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED USASpending.gov Advanced Search

10 10 © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Priorities for Transitioning To FFATA 2.0 What is the meaning of Transparency? What do we mean by accountability? Whom do we want to enable with our information and what do we want to enable them to do? Need to define data collection access procedures and processes that fulfill requirements of FFATA (expenditures, sub-awards) Need to access, integrate multiple data streams that are fundamentally different in nature (Obligation, expenditure, appropriations, commitments, etc.) Robust, expandable data platform that fulfills all search and analytical requirements (dynamic rankings based on result sets, searching across dimensions) Fulfill initial promise of program source code, make FFATA a true management tool as well as a full-featured taxpayer resource Required fields need greater accuracy, fuller reporting Redacted contracts???
