NIC launches first Recovery Act iPhone application
eGovernment firm NIC has launched “Transparent Gov,” a free iPhone application dedicated to deciphering where and how the money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is to be spent.
The Transparent Gov application includes:
- Clear and concise spending information depicted graphically for ease in understanding
- Lists of key recipients of the funds
- Ability to drill down into relevant text from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009
NIC also launched today a one-stop online source for access to stimulus and transparency information from governments nationwide. The site is a free resource that tracks the transparency services offered by federal, state, and local governments in their efforts to make more information available to citizens.
