The 11-year-old spending transparency website is currently managed by the General Services Administration and the President’s budget proposal made a request for an additional 5.5 million for Treasury to manage the site.

A Treasury spokeswoman said the department will also identify medium and long term changes to apply on the website.

Rep. Darrell Issa supported the move, saying, that it will be a “good first step” to give a “checkbook level” detail of the government’s spending.

According to the article, The President requested $20 million for the e-gov fund this year, but Congress has typically appropriated less money for e-gov than the White House requested.
