Federal Data Strategy: 2020 Action Plan   [open pdf - 7MB]

From the Document: "The use of data is transforming the economy, government, and society. If the Federal Government does not maintain its role as a preeminent supplier and sophisticated and ethical user of data, it will no longer be able to fulfill its civic duty to the public. [...] In March 2018, the PMA [President's Management Agenda] set out a long-term vision for effective and modern government capabilities focused on system-level thinking to tackle interconnected barriers to change, most notably related to aging technology infrastructure, disconnected data and an outmoded civil service framework. The PMA's three drivers of transformation--IT [information technology] modernization; data, accountability, and transparency; and the workforce of the future--were developed to promote change that resonates across the Federal enterprise. [...] The result of this iterative co-creation is a multi-year strategy that will fundamentally transform how the Federal Government manages, uses, and makes data available that will: [1] Prepare agencies to consider secondary use scenarios, including privacy risks and self-service opportunities for reuse by colleagues, other agencies and governments, researchers, entrepreneurs, and the public[;] [2] Replicate, accelerate, and scale data management and disseminate best practices to the entire Federal Government according to priority and maturity level[;] [3] Provide a long-term roadmap for incremental improvements across budgets and Administrations[;] [4] Provide a single set of annual priorities for the whole of government to focus on[.]"
