Commerce Dept to Start Federal Data Service Development With New Advisory Panel

The Department of Commerce plans to have a new advisory committee in place before the end of March to kick off the development of the Federal Data Service aimed at improving federal data privacy and access, FedScoop reported Monday.

The Advisory Committee on Data for Evidence Building will determine how the Federal Data Service will function and will have a year to design the service and submit its recommendations to the Office of Management and Budget.

The advisory panel will develop a service to pilot projects in an effort to improve data use and access, protect privacy, collect non-survey data and integrate data with administrative and survey data.

The report said the Federal Data Service will support the Federal Data Strategy and the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act.
