An interesting website

I came across this website in my searches recently and thought it was very interesting, although based on the track record of the Obama administration I question the validity of all the data. However, the amount of money flowing through the departments of our government as shown by the data charts is staggering and well worth following. Just to note, this website is put out by the administration.

The website is: IT DASHBOARD - a Federal Dashboard of Federal Spending. For your information, here is a paragraph explaining the nature of this acquired data:

FAQ - For Public

Background: The IT Dashboard provides the public with an online window into the details of Federal information technology investments and provides users with the ability to track the progress of investments over time. The IT Dashboard displays data received from agency reports to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), including general information on over 7,000 Federal IT investments and detailed data for nearly 800 of those investments that agencies classify as "major". The performance data used to track the 800 major IT investments is based on milestone information displayed in agency reports to OMB called "Exhibit 300s" Agency CIOs are responsible for evaluating and updating select data on a monthly basis, which is accomplished through interfaces provided on the website.
