WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board will introduce a new search function on Recovery.gov on Saturday, January 30, that will provide detailed information on job opportunities across the nation.

The feature was announced by Earl E. Devaney, the Recovery Board's Chairman, in his Chairman's Corner column, posted on www.recovery.gov. Devaney also announced other website enhancements, among them an advanced search capability for awards made to recipients of Recovery funds; simplification of the Home Page; and creation of a Map Central landing page. The map page will include a Diversity Map pinpointing how much Recovery money is going into those communities.

The Recovery Board also will be posting data January 30 on recipient awards for the quarter ended December 31, 2009.

The Recovery Board was created in February 2009 to provide accountability and transparency in the expenditure of Recovery monies. It is the agency charged with running the federal website, Recovery.gov, where Americans can find details on the Recovery projects under way in their neighborhoods, their states or around the country.

The website also provides information on federal agencies' plans to disburse Recovery money and gives individuals an opportunity to report suspicions of fraud, waste and abuse.
