When Congress passed the bipartisan Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act (Evidence Act), it set clear expectations for federal agencies to strengthen data governance. Agencies are required to inventory data, promote openness and publication of information, and ensure leadership is in place to improve data management overall. It also formalized the role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO) in federal agencies and standardized CDOs responsibilities. The Data Foundation, in partnership with Grant Thornton Public Sector and Qlik, surveyed federal government CDOs to assess progress implementing their new roles and responsibilities.
This meeting represented the next step in putting the findings in context of current CDO experiences and exploring next steps in best practices for the federal CDO community.
The webinar will provide participants with an outline of the newly released report, “Effective Data Governance: A Survey of Federal Chief Data Officers”. An the co-authors and data officials will provide an overview of the key findings and recommendations, and discuss the future of the federal CDO.
