I'm working on replicating an analysis on Army Corps of Engineers contracts we did a couple of years ago. We have the old files we pulled in July 2019 and the new ones I just pulled this week, July 2021. I used a FY2012 file as an example, and it looks like the vast majority of contracts that had funding agency CORPS OF ENGINEERS - CIVIL WORKS (USACE) in the 2019 data have been recategorized and now have funding agency DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) in the current, 2021 data (using "contract_transaction_unique_key" to match on).
Why was this change made? Is there a different variable that indicates which contracts are (and/or were) USACE funded?
