Improving transparency and accountability in government leads to better decisions and better policy.  Panelists will discuss the US DATA Act, pending legislation that will require structured data for all government performance reporting. This bill offers a remarkable set of changes affecting every facet of government activity and the methods used to make that information accessible to the public.  You’ll learn the intent of the new legislation as well as the scope of what’s being proposed.  But you’ll also learn about programs that are underway today in the US Treasury, geared towards improving data transparency from a government perspective.  Learn about an initiative ongoing in Treasury that aims to make the agency less system-dependent, and that will be able to provide answers to questions for today and tomorrow.
