Data has emerged as an indispensable resource for government, academia, business, and civil society. To unlock its true potential, data must be open: interoperable, machine-readable, and available for all. The U.S. government is poised to transform its spending information into open data. Congressional legislation like the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act
, executive actions like President Obama's Open Data Policy
, and leadership by the Government Accountability and Transparency Board
are coming together around a common, transforming goal. These policy changes are driving the comprehensive standardization and publication of the government's spending information. Join us April 29 for the first Data Transparency Summit
, which will convene leaders from Congress and the executive branch to explore the transformation. Hosted by the Data Transparency Coalition
and presented by PwC, with the Information Technology Industry Council
as a special partner, the summit will work toward a common vision for implementing the DATA Act and achieving full transparency across all domains of federal spending data. Register now.
