Jon Desenberg from the Performance Institute, Bethany Blakey of the Performance Improvement Council, and Hudson Hollister of the Data Transparency Coalitition will participate in a roundtable discussion of federal performance management and the DATA Act.
May 23, 2014
The DATA Act is the nation's first legislative mandate for data transparency in nearly five years. It will have a huge impact on financial and performance data. It requires the Treasury Department and the Office of Management and Budget to transform federal spending from disconnected documents into open, standardized data, and to publish that data online. Hudson Hollister, executive director of the Data Transparency Coalition, spoke to Executive Editor Jason Miller at the 2014 Government Performance Summit.
The measure that will shed light on federal spending data is expected to sail through the House when Congress returns from recess. A version of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act cleared the Senate last week and brought transparency advocates a step closer to governmentwide financial data standards. Hudson Hollister, executive director of the Data Transparency Coalition, explained differences between the House and Senate versions of the DATA Act to Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
The Office of Management and Budget's markup of the Senate's version of the bill changes language around requiring data standards and how the information should be published. Open government advocates are concerned about OMB's suggestions.
On the Federal Drive show blog, you can listen to our interviews, find more information about the guests on the show each day, as well as links to other stories and resources we discuss.
The House-passed DATA Act creates a five-member commission to oversee government transparency.
