An Introduction to the Federal Information Exchange System.
De Santi, Vincent; Scheele, D. Sam
This publication offers a basic introduction to the Federal Information Exchange System (FIXS), a set of procedures for periodically collecting, processing, and publishing data on federal and state expenditures for each program listed in the "Catalog of Federal Assistance Programs." FIXS is designed for use in conjunction with the "Catalog of Federal Assistance Programs" and with "Community Profiles," a federal publication that provides socioeconomic profiles of each county based on more than 1,000 statistical indicators. FIXS is intended to improve public resource management at all government levels by providing policy-makers with information on what state, local, and federal programs are operating in each state and how federal agencies are distributing aid throughout the state.
