new-orleans-tourismDo you want to use your own magnifying glass and examine government contracts in New Orleans?


The Lens, known for its investigative journalism, now provides a new service for its readers - The Vault. The service enables anyone to search through a library of more than 5,300 contracts signed by the city of New Orleans. While the city often uploads contracts to its website for interested citizens to look at, The Vault adds the search function. After finding the document, the reader can download it, as well.

The Lens is checking the city’s website regularly to upload new contracts onto their DocumentCloud. Also, The Lens’s Charles Maldonado has written a primer that will guide the reader in reading and understanding these contracts.
