DATA Act: Moving Beyond Compliance

May 17 | 2–3:50 p.m. ET | 2 CPEs | AUDG

In May 2017, every federal agency will begin reporting its spending information as standardized, open data per the requirements of the DATA Act. This will be a major milestone in the years-long efforts to make federal spending data more accessible, understandable and usable to the public.
 
But the benefits of the DATA Act are not merely a public disclosure for citizens. There is untold value to internal stakeholders and agency leaders across the government on a continual basis to the publication of this data set. Join us to hear the latest updates on the implementation effort across the government and learn about how to unlock the power of federal spending data in your agency.

  • Peter Del Toro, Assistant Director, Strategic Issues, U.S. Government Accountability Office
  • Amy Edwards, Senior Advisor, Financial Transparency, U.S. Department of the Treasury
  • Mike Peckham, Director, HHS DATA Act PMO, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
