Now it's available in Spanish and on Android phones. Patrick Redling is the unit chief for child exploitation investigations at Homeland Security Investigation's Cyber Crimes Center in Fairfax, Virginia. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the app.

Scott Amey, General Counsel, Project on Government Oversight

This month a wealth of data detailing stimulus and Hurricane Sandy spending disappeared from the website recovery.gov.

Yet, businesses that receive federal funds are identified solely by DUNS. There is no alternative for where the government gets that data and Dun & Bradstreet controls how it is used. Scott Amey, general counsel for the Project On Government Oversight, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the matter.
