The Obama administration launched a centralized web platform for the public to view ethics data on Thursday, the latest step the administration has taken to make its records more accessible.
The website, www.ethics.gov, will publish White House visitor records, Office of Government Ethics travel reports, lobbying disclosure data, and Department of Justice Foreign Agents Registration Act data. It will also publish Federal Election Commission individual contribution, candidate and committee reports.
"President Obama has consistently made clear that he will strive to lead the most open, transparent, and accountable government in history," the White House said. Ethics.gov is part of a larger website, data.gov, that publishes other government information.
