Webinar: Exploring the Funding Options for the Evidence Act

Thursday, February 20, 2020, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Online

Overview

Last year, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (Evidence Act) was enacted. It has the potential to dramatically change how the federal government manages data and uses information to inform important policy decisions. As agencies work to implement the Evidence Act, one core question will routinely arise: how much money should agencies spend on generating evidence to inform decision-making? And, importantly, how can the American public track and monitor the amount of funding agencies are allocating annually to support data and evidence activities?

This webinar drew from the Data Foundation's recent white paper, Funding the Evidence Act: Options for Allocating Resources to Meet Emerging Data and Evidence Needs in the Federal Government. During the informational session, attendees heard from one of the paper's authors, Kira Fatherree, who described current approaches to funding data and evidence initiatives and the opportunities available for Congress and Executive Branch agencies to apply various funding models to ensure the intent of the Evidence Act is realized.
