Only top level PSC search and top level NAICS search (a code's first two digits) is enabled with the updated version of the site. Search by indefinite delivery vehicles and procurement instrument identifier, or IDV PIID, is also unavailable with the USASpending.gov update. Search by IDV PIID allowed users to research contract ceilings, period of performance dates and task orders for specific contracting vehicles."
The update also:
The "data download" page on USASpending.gov now has fewer advanced search options, and historical data on inactive transactions once available through "archive" and "delta" files are no longer available on the site."
Thank you for your helpful feedback on the newly re-launched USAspending.gov and my apologies in the delay in circling back.
The USAspending team has been working to improve the usability of the site and has made some great strides to make it easier for average citizens to navigate information. But at the same time, we all understand that some of our expert users (like a lot of you) seek more technical information and the team is striving to meet your needs as well.
This is definitely a work in progress so please keep working with the team as it iterates on the best ways to improve function of the site while maintaining the content you seek. Your initial comments have been really helpful and the USAspending team is already working to address some of them.
Specifically, this week the team addressed data export issues to allow the ability to specify date ranges to download data, added the bulk file format API, and modified the download capability so larger datasets can be downloaded. Additionally, data archives are being added continually. This week, they loaded the 2014 and 2015 delta files that show the new transactions in the last month. You can keep track of the ongoing improvements on the “What’s new” page.
Please keep sharing your feedback and continue working with the USAspending team as it makes improvements to the site. You can do this through the site’s contact page or on the new Github page where you can report issues and track them in the open.
