Purchase Card Transactions

To ensure that District taxpayers know where, when and how their money is being spent, the Office of Contracting and Procurement will post all purchase orders and purchase card transactions on its website. As agencies spend taxpayer dollars, their transactions will be made public. This new initiative is one of many tools that will assist in preventing waste, fraud and abuse. Purchase Card transaction information is updated monthly. For information about specific transactions, contact relevant agency directly.

Purpose

This dataset has been created by Citywide Data Warehouse program. The mission of the Citywide Data Warehouse is to provide timely and accurate information for decision-making; support executive and agency management in the implementation of business processes which will guarantee access to useful and well-organized information for DC government workers, non-governmental organizations, and the public.
