The Bureau of the Fiscal Service relaunched USAspending.gov in March 2015 with data from October 1, 2008 to present. Agencies are required to submit data files within 30 days after making an award or after making a modification/transaction to an award, except for the DoD which delays its submission by 90 days. Download data in various formats at https://www.usaspending.gov/DownloadCenter/Pages/DataDownload.aspx
