WASHINGTON, DC — The Data Transparency Coalition and StreamLink Software announced today that StreamLink Software has joined the Coalition as a Regular Member. StreamLink’s support will help advance the goals of the Coalition, which seeks the standardization and publication of the U.S. government’s data.
“StreamLink Software is pioneering new solutions that use open data to streamline compliance mandates for grantees and other entities that are required to submit government reports” said Hudson Hollister, Executive Director of the Data Transparency Coalition. “We’re thrilled to welcome StreamLink’s leadership in support of our shared vision to achieve much-needed data transparency reforms like the DATA Act.”
Today’s announcement comes on the heels of the passage of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) through the U.S. House of Representatives on November 18. The enactment of the DATA Act, which will transform the federal government’s spending information from disconnected documents into open data, is the Coalition’s primary legislative goal. An amended version of the bill’s companion legislation was given unanimous approval by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee earlier in November.
“StreamLink Software is excited to engage with the Data Transparency Coalition in the effort to win open data reforms like the DATA Act, which enhance public sector management and reduce costs,” said Adam Roth, President and CEO of StreamLink Software. “Citizens, agencies and grantees alike will benefit from a more efficient and reliable system of compliance that replaces manual reporting tasks with automation.”
StreamLink Software recently released a report exploring the state of grant reporting. The whitepaper explains how grant management will be transformed by the passage of the DATA Act.
