Treasury, Fiscal Service Seek Public Input on Federal Spending Data Standards

budget analysis reviewThe Treasury Department‘s Bureau of the Fiscal Service has issued a request for information on standards the agency wants in order to guide data exchange activities in support of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014.

In a notice posted Friday on the Federal Register, the Fiscal Service said it aims for public input to help shape the financial data standards that the Treasury and the Office of Management and Budget will impose for federal agencies.

The Fiscal Service also wants the standards to help facilitate the transparency of federal spending and related activities as required by the DATA Act and the previous Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006.

Another goal of the Fiscal Service is to ensure that the USASpending.gov website, which currently serves as the portal of information on federal spending and appropriations, presents “consistent, reliable and searchable” data, the notice stated.

Responses to the RFI are due by Nov. 25.
