This online consultation ran from April 27 through May 3, 2009 and was hosted by the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA).
From the about page:
In February 2009, Congress passed and President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. In the face of an economic crisis, the magnitude of which we have not seen since the Great Depression, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act represents a strategic — and significant — investment in our country’s future. The President also made an unprecedented commitment to implement the recovery in a transparent and accountable way, with a website — Recovery.gov — at the center of that effort.
Making Recovery.gov a useful portal for citizens requires finding innovative ways to integrate, track, and display data from thousands of federal, state, and local entities. With this online dialogue, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board is reaching out to the public, state and local partners, potential recipients and solution providers to help fulfill the commitment to a transparent and accountable recovery.
