The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act mandates transparency and oversight requirements.  The act establishes the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.  The Deputy Director for Management of the Office of Management and Budget shall serve as the Chairperson of the Board.  The members shall include the inspectors general of the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Justice, Transportation and Treasury.


The Board shall establish a website, Recovery.gov, within 30 days of enactment of the legislation.  The website went live as President Barack Obama was signing the bill.
