The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 required the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board to create a website "to foster greater accountability and transparency in the use of funds made available in this Act.” Recovery.gov went live on February 17, 2009, the day President Obama signed the Act into law.
The site's primary mandate is to provide taxpayers with user-friendly tools to track how and where Recovery funds are spent.
The site also offers the public an opportunity to report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse related to Recovery funding.
Recovery.gov is operated by the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, which was also created by the Recovery Act.
* Visits to Recovery.gov between Sept. 28, 2009 and Aug. 23, 2012.
