Behind Recovery.gov’s new look

The relaunched site is more than just a new design

The relaunched Recovery.gov Version 2.0 , which tracks spending under the economic stimulus law, restructures more than the look of the Web site; the entire architecture has been redesigned.

The site's overseer, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, lays out how Recovery 2.0 works:

Agencies send their data, including recipient registration and reporting, and agency validation, via the FederalReporting.gov Web site to a database — both hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The data is replicated to the Recovery.gov database hosted by the General Services Administration, and designed, maintained and overseen by a team that includes prime contractor Smartronix Inc. -- and subcontractors KPMG LLC, Synteractive Corp. and TMP Government Inc. -- GSA and its contractor Savvis Federal Inc., and subcontractor Level 3 Communications Inc. The Homeland Security Department is handling information security monitoring.

The GSA-hosted operation supports Recovery.gov’s Web portal, data storage, reports on use of funds, data visualization, content management, pre-compiled reports, raw report data and advanced geospatial capabilities.
