Advancing Data Driven Decision-Making In The Public Sector
The Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018 and the Federal Data Strategy established new requirements for agencies to manage and use data to make better decisions. Agency leaders face multiple challenges in meeting these requirements. ACT-IAC undertook the “Advancing Data-Driven Decision-Making in the Public Sector” project to provide agencies with effective tools, strategies and practices, help them meet these new mandates, and strengthen their abilities to manage and use data to make decisions. The project report includes a data management maturity model, a self-assessment tool, and key lessons and practices agencies can use to help organize and accelerate their efforts.
