The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has cleared a bill that requires agencies to post government spending numbers on specific programs on government performance data websites, NextGov reported.

According to Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H), who introduced the bill this month, the Government Results Transparency Act “would build a bridge between performance data and spending data.”

“Under GRTA, the government will finally be able to publish all of its performance data and spending data for each program on a public website in a format that makes it easy for anyone to search, download and analyze,” he said.

The bill has received bipartisan support and has been supported by John Wonderlich, policy director at the Sunlight Foundation.

“There is some frustration at performance data reporting, and this is an attempt to breathe new life into how it works,” he told GovExec.
