Carol Cha, Government Accountability Office

USASpending.gov was supposed to be the go-to place for all federal spending. But after a couple of years of operation, it's only halfway there. The Government Accountability Office finds that agencies do a decent job of reporting contract spending. But when it comes to grants and awards, it's another story. Carol Cha is the director of information technology acquisition management issues at the GAO. She joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss the chief findings from her agency's audit.

USASpending moves to ‘big data cloud'

The General Services Administration is moving its huge database of federal spending information to a big data cloud. The USASpending.gov site will make the move to a platform that can take in federal contract award information from a variety of sources and perform data analytics. The system is based on the Apache Software Foundation's open source Hadoop platform. USASpending lets users search for federal spending information, both prime contracts and subawards, by using simple keyword searches.
