Earlier this year, the Chief Data Officers Council requested public feedback on how they can continue to improve the government’s management, use, protection, dissemination and generation of data in government’s decision-making and operations.
In response, the Data Coalition hosted a virtual public forum to create an opportunity for the data community to offer feedback, recommendations, and advice to the federal CDO Council. As a result of that forum, as well as research informed by the Data Foundation's CDO Insights Survey, we offered the following 12 recommendations to the CDO Council. Our full comments are available here.
The success of CDOs in the federal government hinges on their ability to perform expected and critical tasks. If they are successful, government data can be an asset, creating a robust data infrastructure that will serve a variety of purposes, including improving operational decision-making and evidence-based policymaking capabilities. While there are challenges, the progress of CDOs over the past year is commendable. We hope to continue a productive working relationship and dialogue with the Council going forward and are happy to respond to any questions you may have regarding these recommendations.
