2010 Supplemental Appropriations Act allows public access to Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System
A  new supplemental appropriations law has given the public access to the most comprehensive contractor database, rekindling the debate about limits to transparency in government.

The Supplemental Appropriations Act for fiscal 2010, which President Barack Obama signed  into law July 29, allows the public to access the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) on the Web.  Agencies can block only contractors’ past performance reviews.
