OMB Launches New Tool Allowing Individuals to Study Federal Funding Programs

The Office of Management and Budget has announced a new searchable tool that improves government transparency and accessibility for federal funding programs.

According to the OMB, the Federal Program Inventory allows the general public, congressional stakeholders, oversight bodies and other interested parties to search through various programs, types of assistance agencies have to offer and estimated and actual program spending per program.

FPI uses data from existing government sources to give users detailed information about several programs, award recipients and other grant opportunities, FedScoop reported Thursday.

FPI’s announcement is one of several efforts from the OMB to ensure that government agencies maintain clean and accountable practices.

In September, the agency started drafting new guidance on government agencies’ artificial intelligence use and management. Details within the memo include the appointment of a chief AI officer, the creation of a publicly available AI strategy and the establishment of guidance for generative AI.

In June, the OMB started developing new data collection standards and best practices for matters related to race, ethnicity and sexual identity.
