Public Forum: Action Items for Implementing the Federal Data Strategy


The Data Coalition and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) co-sponsored a joint public forum on the Federal Data Strategy’s draft 2019-2020 Action Plan on Monday, July 8. The forum provided an opportunity for the business, academic, and non-profit communities to offer feedback on the 16 draft action items in the Federal Data Strategy.

The draft actions included broad priorities around data resources and tools, research access to data, developing data inventories, improving resources for artificial intelligence research, and setting standards for certain types of data. The actions also included directions for every agency to develop data governance structures, strategies for strengthening skills, and to begin the process of developing learning agendas and identifying priority datasets.

During the forum, registered speakers provided feedback on the draft action items, the prioritization and timelines for the actions, and other actions that should be considered.
