Around the world, financial regulators are transforming document-based reporting requirements into standardized, machine-readable data.  This data transparency transformation promises better accountability to investors, enhanced regulatory oversight through data analytics, and automated, cheaper compliance – but only if regulators adopt consistent data standards for the information they collect. The Financial Regulation Summit will bring together U.S. regulatory leaders, Congressional supporters of data transparency, regulated entities, and the tech companies whose solutions are ready to use transparent data to serve investors, regulators, and registrants. Together we’ll chart a course for reform. U.S. regulators have a great deal of change ahead. Many reporting requirements are still expressed as disconnected documents where standardized data formats could improve accountability, management, and compliance. And although the Treasury Department has called for the universal adoption of the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) to identify regulated entities the same way across all regulators, most agencies have not yet embraced it. But the time is right for change. Last year, President Obama signed the DATA Act into law, mandating similar reforms for the U.S. government’s own spending reports. In 2015, Congress and regulators can work together to pursue data transparency in financial regulation. That work begins at our Summit.

Speakers

Gene Dodaro
Comptroller General of the United States

Gene L. Dodaro became the eighth Comptroller General of thPlaceholder Imagee United States and head of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on December 22, 2010, when he was confirmed by the United States Senate. He was nominated by President Obama in September of 2010 from a list of candidates selected by a bipartisan, bicameral congressional commission. He had been serving as Acting Comptroller General since March of 2008.
Mr. Dodaro has testified before Congress dozens of times on important national issues, including the nation’s long term fiscal outlook, efforts to reduce and eliminate overlap and duplication across the federal government and GAO’s “High Risk List” that focuses on specific challenges—from reducing improper payments under Medicare and Medicaid to improving the Pentagon’s business practices. In addition Mr. Dodaro has led efforts to fulfill GAO’s new audit responsibilities under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
As Comptroller General, Mr. Dodaro helps oversee the development and issuance of hundreds of reports and testimonies each year to various committees and individual Members of Congress. These and other GAO products have led to hearings and legislation, billions of dollars in taxpayer savings, and improvements to a wide range of government programs and services.
