The Government of the Northwest Territories today released its Contracts Over $5000 annual report for the 2015-2016 fiscal year in an open data format. 

This makes analyzing government financial expenditures easier with a searchable, sortable document. 

Additionally, unlike PDF files, open data formats work with screen-readers, improving accessibility for those suffering from visual impairments.
