The U.S. Government published the Federal Data Strategy Plan along with a request for public comment. The Year 1 plan focuses on four areas including Enterprise Data Governance, Access Use and Augmentation, Decision Making and Accountability, and Commercialization, Innovation and Public Use. The plan covers three types of activities:

  • Shared actions are led by a single agency or existing council for the benefit of all agencies and with available cross-agency resources. They provide government-wide thought leadership, direction, tools, and/or services for implementing the Federal Data Strategy. Funding is identified to implement each of the identified shared actions through the President’s Management Agenda.
  • Community actions are taken by a group of agencies around a common topic, usually through an established cross-agency council or other existing coordinating mechanism, and with available cross-agency resources. They represent ongoing, mature, cross-agency priorities that will use the Federal Data Strategy Practices and implementation guidance to more quickly and consistently achieve their goals.
  • Agency-specific actions are taken by an individual agency and are designed to build capacity using currently available agency resources. They set expectations for progress and success in implementing the Practices.

Comments must be submitted by July 5, 2019.
