Federal Data Strategy Action Plan

The 2021 Federal Data Strategy Action Plan is expected to be released in December 2020 and agency chief data officers intend to see more partnership and data sharing opportunities in the next strategy, FedScoop reported Thursday.

Kirsten Dalboe, CDO at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, said during a discussion at ACT-IAC’s Reimagine Nation ELC 2020 that specific measures in the next action plan could help advance the Federal Data Science Training Program and address confusion in data use agreements at agencies.

“Giving agencies the space to continue to mature their practices over the next year will be really important,” Dalboe said. “And I think a big area I’m hoping to see growth in for the Year 2 strategy is really around sharing, the coordination, the community aspect.”

Kshemendra Paul, CDO at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), said the VA is working with the Department of Defense on a joint analytics and data strategy, which will center on customer experience metrics with regard to joint policy development, analytics, data sharing and interoperability.
