Releasing Names and Federal Employee Salaries (Since 1816)
By Ralph Smith

Since 1989, the Syracuse group, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse or TRAC, had been posting an Internet database with the names, work locations, salaries and job categories of the several million federal civilian workers except those in some law enforcement agencies. The data were used by reporters and government watchdog groups to monitor government policies and to try to detect waste or abuse in the federal system. TRAC provided the information to the public for those who paid a subscription fee.
