April 25 | 2–3:50 p.m. ET | 2 CPEs | FOS: AUDG

Since May 9, 2017, every federal agency is required to report standardized spending data. This webinar will focus on explaining how you can use data to enhance the value, quality, engagement, interaction, and effectiveness of your daily task. Hear the results of the Grants Pilot test and learn how to prepare especially, if you are non-federal agency. 

We will also explore resources and software such as, GitHub, and the Central Data Element Repository Library to help guide in reporting automation and reduce costs.
