Audit finds that federal transparency website needs improvement

Although the federal government is attempting to make federal spending more transparent through a website, auditors say it needs improvement, Government Executive reports.

According to the article, a Department of Treasury Inspector General audit found that the Bureau of the Fiscal Service’s effort to improve the website is falling short because the website needs to be more accessible and it does not address quality concerns of data presented.

The audit recommended that the website meet external user expectations regarding the quality of the information it contains, the article notes.
