The Data Coalition and the Data Foundation announce a merger agreement to align efforts and missions for further advancing and promoting effective use of government data in 2021.
The Data Coalition, America’s premier voice on data policy, announces eight new members: Esper, IBM, GS1 US, Public Spend Forum, Summit LLC, and Tyler Technologies.
The Data Coalition is pleased to see several data priorities included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 and COVID-19 relief package, including the AI in Government Act, proposals to modernize public health data systems, and funding for the implementation of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act.
The Data Coalition endorses the bipartisan AI Resolution which presents a clear strategy for materially improving and rapidly advancing the use of AI. It envisions the adoption of AI by transparently and equitably promoting the use of high-quality data across government.
