We are in the midst of an exciting time for data policy in the United States. Our CEO, Nick Hart, Ph.D., explains how excited he is to lead our organization and members into this new era in our latest blog.
RegTech Data Summit Keynote Speaker Ben Harris, Chief Economist, Results for America – Former Chief Economist and Economic Advisor to Vice President Joe Biden, provides his perspective on open, standardized data and the benefits of evidence-based policymaking.
In recent years, we have seen an explosion of regulatory technology, or “RegTech.” At our second annual RegTech Data Summit, we’ll explore the intersection of regulatory reporting, emerging technology, and open data standards with financial regulators, industry leaders, RegTech experts, academics, and open data advocates.
What’s Next for Open Data in the U.S.: A Look Ahead Following the Passage of the OPEN Government Data Act
Now that the OPEN Government Data Act is law, what comes next? That’s what the Data Coalition and allied organizations aimed to answer at a joint panel discussing the law’s implementation and what is next for open data in the United States.
From our open data advocacy efforts to our jam-packed events schedule, this was an eventful year at the Data Coalition. As we look toward 2019 and beyond, we want to highlight some of the Coalition’s biggest accomplishments and changes that occurred throughout 2018.
On November 8, the Data Coalition joined the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Office of Management and Budget to host a public forum discussing the Federal Data Strategy. The second in a series on the strategy, this forum allowed the public, businesses and other stakeholders to comment on the recently published draft set of practices.
The Office of Management and Budget released an updated Federal Data Strategy earlier this week, which included new draft practices and use cases.
Governments around the world are implementing Standard Business Reporting (SBR) to modernize how they interact with the private sector and collect regulatory reporting. The Data Coalition is making the case for SBR in the U.S. federal government.
Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the CEP’s report, “The Promise of Evidence-based Policymaking,” and we took the opportunity to join members of the Commission and other guests at the Bipartisan Policy Center’s event, “Evidence: Time for Act.”
Modernizing financial regulatory reporting is no easy task. Open data standards are the key: by replacing document-based reports with standardized data, regulators can spur modernization.
The U.S. regulatory reporting framework is fragmented resulting in reporting requirements that are often duplicative and overlapping. J.P. Morgan Chase has issued a call to action.
Thanks to a generous invitation from Terrapinn, Data Coalition leadership spent nine days in Sydney and Canberra meeting leaders at the vanguard of Australia’s digital transformation.
The benefits of contextualized, standardized data that can be brought about by the OPEN Government Data Act should also extend to an area that most workers and employers already have to deal with – retirement security.
Last week, the Data Coalition responded to the newly released Federal Data Strategy. Our response provided high-level commentary on the draft principles as well as six proposed use cases that the Administration could potentially work into the prospective Data Incubator Project.
On Wednesday, the House Oversight Subcommittee on Intergovernmental Affairs convened a hearing to assess the government’s management of the federal grants process. Detailed in our latest blog are key exchanges between the Subcommittee and witnesses.
On Thursday, July 12, the House Administration Committee hosted the 6th Annual Legislative Data and Transparency Conference, which brought individuals from government agencies together with data users and transparency advocates to foster a conversation about the use of legislative data, how agencies use technology, and how they can use it better in the future.
If you have been following along with the White House Performance Management Agenda (PMA), you will have noticed the release of the Second Quarter Action plans late last month. At the Data Coalition, we are zeroing in on Cross Agency Priority (CAP) Goal 2: Data as a Strategic Asset and Goal 8: Results-Oriented Accountability for Grants Management.
The Data Coalition’s Board of Directors announce that Hudson Hollister has decided to depart from his role as Executive Director of the Data Coalition effective October 1, 2018, and that a search process has started to replace him.
