Adam Andrzejewski

Operation Drain the Swamp: How Transparency is Revolutionizing Politics
CEO/Founder, Open the Books
Adam Andrzejewski (say: Angie-eff-ski) is the CEO/founder of OpenTheBooks.com. Before dedicating his life to public service, Adam co-founded HomePages Directories, a $20 million publishing company (1997- 2007). His works have been featured on Good Morning America, ABC World News Tonight, C-SPAN, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, FOX News, CNN, National Public Radio (NPR), Forbes, and many other national media.

Mission: Capture & post online every dime taxed and spent at every level of government - federal, state and local across America. Simply stated, "Every Dime. Online. In Real Time."

Our work is premised in powerful Appropriations Clause of the U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 9, Clause 7: "... A Regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of All Public Money Shall be published from time to time." There's a clear interpretation: post every dime, online, in real time.

Today, OpenTheBooks.com is the largest private repository of U.S. public-sector spending. Mission: post "every dime, online, in real time." To date, OpenTheBooks.com has captured 5 billion government-spending records, including nearly all disclosed federal government spending since 2000; 49 of 50 state checkbooks; and 22 million public employee salary and pension records from 60,000 public bodies across America.

We display this data on our website at OpenTheBooks.com; in our mobile app – Open The Books, free in the Apple 'App Store' and 'Google Play' store; and on our interactive mapping platform by ZIP code. Our Honorary Chairman is the U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, MD (ret.).

The group's aggressive transparency and forensic auditing of government spending has led to the assembly of grand juries, indictments, and successful prosecutions; congressional briefings, hearings, and subpoenas; Government Accountability Office (GAO) audits; Congressional Research Service (CRS) reports; U.S. government administrative policy changes; White House policy; federal legislation; and much more.

Andrzejewski has spoken at the Columbia School of Journalism and Harvard, Georgetown, and George Washington law schools regarding big data journalism. As a senior contributor at Forbes, Adam has nearly 5 million pageviews on 107 published investigations.
