Abstract

Transparency Enabling Transformation: The Benefits to Agencies through Implementation of the DATA Act
Developed by the Financial Management Committee, Collaboration and Transformation Shared Interest Group
Date Released: June 2015

At first glance, benefits from implementing the new federal requirements in the DATA Act may seem less apparent than the inherent obligations. Wise implementers, however, are finding opportunities to leverage compliance as part of the broader, data-driven strategy for advancing the agency mission. Policies, processes, and technology can be developed to save time, reduce burden, and share the return on investment at all levels of the organization. This report addresses the many benefits that agencies will realize, not only by complying with the regulations set forth by the DATA Act, but also by becoming early adopters of the legislation.
