The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 required the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board to create and maintain a website "to foster greater accountability and transparency in the use of funds made available in this Act.” Recovery.gov went live on February 17, 2009, the day President Obama signed the Act into law.
The site's primary mandate was to provide taxpayers with user-friendly, interactive tools to track how and where ARRA funds were being spent.
The site also allowed the public an opportunity to report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse related to ARRA funding.
