XBRL US provided feedback to the Request for Information on Behalf of the Chief Data Officers (CDO) Council, which was published by the Office of Shared Solutions and Performance Improvement (OSSPI). The CDO Council has 5 statutory purposes: 1) establish Governmentwide best practice for the use, protection, dissemination, and generation of data; 2) promote and encourage data sharing agreements between agencies; 3) identify ways in which agencies can improve upon the production of evidence for use in policymaking; 4) consult with the public and engage with private users of Government data and other stakeholders on how to improve access to data assets of the Federal Government; and 5) identify and evaluate new technology solutions for improving the collection and use of data.
The RFI sought input from the public on seven key areas. XBRL US explained the rationale for adopting governmentwide data standards and responded to specific areas in the RFI addressing how data standards can support:
- Section 3 – Data Inventories
- Section 4 – Data Sharing
- Section 6 – Ethics and Equity
- Section 7 – Technology
