Another Three Agencies Begin Posting Recovery Act Lobbying Contacts


Three more agencies began posting, or provided a place to post, communications between lobbyists and agency officials in regards to funds distributed from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Last week, there were eleven agencies posting lobbyist communications, as required under the March 20 memorandum issued by President Obama to all agencies involved with the distribution of Recovery Act funds.

The three new agencies include the Department of Eduction, the Department of Health and Human Services and the General Services Administration. Differing from all previous attempts to display lobbyist contacts, the Department of Health and Human Services provides a searchable database. Unfortunately this is poorly thought out. There are no categories, just a search bar, and, at present, there are no contacts to search. Hopefully they can make this more useful once they have actually posted lobbying contacts. The General Services Administration has two pages (hence the second link in the chart below), one for written communications and one for other communications.
