The General Services Administration has launched a new effort to support data standardization and data federation systems across federal and local government agencies and also promote open and interconnected digital government.

GSA said Thursday U.S. Data Federation will build on efforts of Data.gov and utilize case studies that demonstrate unified and coherent data architectures across multiple agencies and help the public compare data analysis across government bodies.

U.S. Data Federation will aid the agency’s Open Government Plan and emphasize emerging data standards as well as facilitate participation from government agencies and develop reusable components for data federation such as schema documentation tools, schema validation tools and automated data aggregation.

“The U.S. Data Federation is one of many initiatives the Obama Administration has launched to support government-wide data standardization,” GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth said.

Roth noted that the GSA-led effort to promote open data aims to help bolster transparency throughout government and boost the quality of products and services delivered to citizens.
