We started Vigilant with a clear problem in mind: government records are far too difficult to access. This impedes transparency, and makes it harder for people who need access to this information to do their jobs. Over the last four years—whether it’s wrangling antiquated databases, messy archived documents, or records scattered between hundreds of balkanized datasets—we’ve worked to enhance transparency and make it easier to access public data.
