WHITEPAPER: The DATA Act

February 23, 2018

Mark Twain once said, “The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all.” In 2017, the nation’s first open data law, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014 (DATA Act) moved from a pilot phase to full implementation. However, the jury is still out on how the public will react to this massive effort to bring unprecedented visibility into U.S. federal government spending data. This white paper covers the trends that led to the passage of the Digital Accountability and Transparency (DATA) Act in 2014 and why the push for this law could be such a game-changer for federally funded organizations.
