Released: February 2015
The upcoming requirement to publish federal spending data mandated by the recently enacted Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act), creates an imperative for the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to begin working with federal agencies, private-sector vendors and data consumers, and other stakeholders on building a DATA Act community and beginning a conversation about the implementation strategy. This ACT-IAC briefing acknowledges key strategic questions raised by Treasury and OMB to date, and outlines initial measures to address them and potential avenues of discussion and inquiry.
