Find out where Covid-19 funds were spent.
POGO came to Fuselab Creative to design one of the most important government spending oversight platforms in U.S. History.
COVID-19 Government spending falls into numerous types, such as loans, grants, contracts of all types, and agency budget support. It’s a difficult geography to navigate, and this is why the POGO tracker is so important to our democracy.
The Fuselab wireframes needed to account for an incredibly complex set of data inputs, while also creating a simple and intuitive experience for all users from all levels of technical proficiency.
Users of this tracker have the opportunity to see government spending across the country and within specific filters such as population, ethnicity, and unemployment rates; something no other COVID spending tracker offers!
As users dig into individual states more and more specific information is opened up, allowing in-depth research aimed at supporting investigative reporters and other researchers interested in county by county data for each state.
Find out where COVID-19 funds were spent.
The table view allows for incontext research based on side-by-side comparisons of data within a specific set of filters, while also allowing users to actually download spreadsheets for offline research as well.
The tool demo is meant to pull back the curtain on the entire platform and allow users to see what is possible before they actually engage with what the tool has to offer, and to better understand the possibilities and limitations.
Users are provided with the ability to look at summary data by specific industries and then within in each state in the country to see how their state may compare to other across the U.S. within critical spending areas like Healthcare.
