New Strategies and Techniques

Full line item detail: Federal

Release full details of federal government expenditures down to the accounts payable item level so that citizens can see where the money is really going and make meaningful suggestions. Avoid hiding all detail in large budget line items. Possible implementation could include:

(A) posting spreadsheets on Google Docs to make the information easily sorted/searched/charted, and (B) allowing interactive discussion/feedback with open source content management systems like Drupal or Joomla.
