The president hasn’t yet signed the economic stimulus bill, but you can already get a glimpse of Recovery.gov, the Web site intended to track stimulus spending.
There isn’t much content on the site yet, of course, but the one thing we find interesting is the timeline at the bottom. It sets out milestones for agencies â€” federal, state and local â€” to begin reporting on their stimulus spending.
A few highlights:
- On May 3 (75 days from now), agencies release “performance plans” on how they’re using their stimulus dollars;
- On May 20, they begin reporting their competitive grants and contracts;
- On July 15, the recipients of those grants and contracts â€” businesses, state and local governments â€” report on their performance.
