The DATA Act of 2014 established standardized data fields and formats for all the information that federal agencies must report to the Treasury Department and the White House about their contracts and grants. The DATA Act’s deadline hit on May 9, 2017, when every federal agency began reporting data – creating the first-ever unified data set covering all federal spending.
The next phase of the DATA Act will be to standardize the fields and formats of the information that grantees must report to agencies. The White House OMB will issue its report to Congress on this next phase in August.
For federal grant officers, the DATA Act means better decisions. For inspectors general, the DATA Act enables high-tech anti-fraud tools. For grantees, the DATA Act promises automated, cheaper reporting. For Congress and the public, the DATA Act offers a richer understanding of how taxpayers’ money is being spent.
The DATA Act Summit will bring together the Congressional allies and administration officials who are driving these changes; the agency leaders who are using newly-standardized data to derive new insights; the nonprofit advocates who are supporting data-driven accountability; and the technology companies whose solutions are doing the work.
