From the Document: "New tools, technologies, and norms are creating opportunity to use data to bolster the Federal Government's mission delivery, service design, and tax-dollar stewardship for the public. In order to leverage these opportunities, the Government must address consistency in skills, interoperability, and best practices in how agencies use and manage data. This memorandum establishes a Federal Data Strategy (Strategy) as a framework of operational principles and best practices that help agencies deliver on the promise of data in the 21 st century. Through consistent data infrastructure and practices, the Strategy will enable Government to fully leverage data as a strategic asset by supporting strong data governance and providing the protection and security that the American people, businesses, and partners deserve."
