Open The Books


Search the United States Government checkbook since the year 2000. $31 Trillion in spending. The app also contains five year salary histories for 2.2 million federal employees and the last four years of all farm subsidies.

Hyper-localize all federal spending by using your current GPS location, setting a custom location by zip code, or search by a vendor name or employee's last name.

In addition, with this app you can find the salary history of all Illinois government employees from virtually every level of government.

For The Good of Illinois is a 501(c)4 non-partisan, non-profit organization. Visit our website at www.openthebooks.com.

We are a network of tens of thousands of Illinoisans, from all walks of life, who believe that public policy should rest on two principles: transparency and accountability.

As US Senator Everett Dirksen said, "When I feel the heat, I see the light." With courtesy and respect, citizens should hold their elected officials accountable.

The need for transparency has never been greater. Americans have never been more willing. Now is the time to stand up and be heroes.

The app for those who value transparency Anyone who wonders about the wealth transfer from the taxpayer to the elite in gov't will appreciate this app. This app makes it clear that not only are public sector people paid more than the private sector, but they also have better perks and much much much better job security. Ironically these same people support the Occupy Wall Street movement. If only the OWS people understood the hypocrisy of their backers in gov't.

Uninstalled Great app but I don't like any app that pushes notifications in the background when it's not running and doesn't give me the ability to turn it off so I uninstalled. Turn off background processing and it will be 5 stars.
