Dashboard Spy here with a look at the White House’s most recent enterprise dashboard designed to promote more transparency on how the government allocates its funds.
The U.S. government’s Foreign Assistance Dashboard is maintained by the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Take a look at this Federal business intelligence dashboard at this link: http://www.foreignassistance.gov. Click on this image to enlarge the dashboard screenshot:
The administration hopes that the site will help governments receiving funds to better plan and budget, as well enable donors to coordinate and target investments more effectively, according to the post. As with other federal dashboards, the government also hopes the public will hold agencies accountable for the money being spent to ensure it is not used wastefully.
My impression on the dashboard design:
Love the left/right navigation arrows on either side of the main graphic. Combined with the partial view of the dashboard metric “previous” (to the left) and the “next” chart (to the right), these arrows complement the sliding graphics device perfectly.
