New Search Engine Bridges Agency Data Sets
The Commission has upgraded the search engine on FEC.gov to provide a single point of access to information from across the entire website. The new, more robust search system can simultaneously query both static and dynamic content, including enforcement information, advisory opinion documents and campaign finance data that were previously available only through separate search tools. The new system also groups data by category and presents the results in an intuitive manner that not only helps users find the information they need, but also suggests additional content that may be relevant.
The new system goes beyond previous indexes of static files to provide access to the very latest dynamically generated data from FEC reports, as well as historical content dating back as far as 1975. A full list of resources is available on the FEC’s website.
