recovery.gov to be launched

In this interesting White House Blog posting, I read the remarks of the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barack Obama, on the economy after meeting with business leaders on January 28th, 2009. I noticed, for example, this part:
"We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov - because I firmly believe what Justice Louis Brandeis once said, that sunlight is the best disinfectant, and I know that restoring transparency is not only the surest way to achieve results, but also to earn back the trust in government without which we cannot deliver the changes the American people sent us here to make."

What does the government of the country, in which you are a citizen, do to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending?
