We provide the entire data set used by USAspending.gov as a PostgreSQL archive, which includes DATA Act data from Fiscal Year 2001 to present.

It includes a random sampling of awards, submission, and reference data. Which are enough data for running the application locally
Database download archives are generated on a monthly basis.
