# Increase federal spending
# Implement a system of recipient reporting that shows the entire federal spending chain
# Improve federal data quality
# Replace the DUNS number system with a more open, publicly available system
# Post Treasury account information online to help check federal spending information
# Require the posting of full federal contracts and grants online
# Make USASpending.gov the hub of all public spending and contracting information
