FiscalNote, a data provider that provides predictive analytics on legislative and regulatory actions, has announced two acquisitions that expand its global data offering.

The two firms are Fireside, a Washington, DC-based provider of constituent management workflow tools used by the US Congress, and TimeBase, a provider focused on legislative research and tracking tools to understand Australian legislation.

“What most excites me about Fireside and Timebase is that each strengthens us in a different way,” said Tim Hwang, FiscalNote’s founder and CEO. “TimeBase expands the breadth of global jurisdictions we cover and Fireside literally delivers on our mission of connecting people and organizations to government by providing the tools Congress uses to communicate with constituents.”

Over the past six months, FiscalNote has made several data provider acquisitions, including FactSquared and Oxford Analytica. Since launching in 2014, the firm has acquired an additional four data intelligence companies, which include political and legislative news media specialist Roll Call, EU regulatory and legislative intelligence provider Shungham, online government affairs consultancy voterVoice, and South Korean political candidate analysis app MyCandidate.
