SAHF Submits Comments on Federal Data Strategy Draft Practices
In March 2018, the President’s Management Agenda outlined a goal to develop and implement a comprehensive government-wide Federal Data Strategy. Envisioned as a long-term strategy, senior executive branch leaders have committed to issue a detailed plan with principles, practices, and discrete actions to deliver a more consistent approach to federal data stewardship, use, and access. The strategy is being built with insights and expertise from the full spectrum of government and non-government stakeholders. The first step is a draft set of practices that will serve as the basis for new expectations agencies will have for data governance, management, protection, use, and partnerships.
SAHF provided comments on the practices stressing the importance and value of federal data that is widely accessible, timely, well-documented, and open to feedback from stakeholders.
