How to comment
Submit comments at http://strategy.data.gov/action-plan/ by July 8, 2019. Comments should be informative for the Federal Data Strategy.
We are looking for comments that will help shape the Year-1 Action Plan, specifically on the following:
- Additional fundamental actions to implement the Federal Data Strategy that are not included in this draft Year-1 Action Plan, with rationale for inclusion.
- Additional actions that would align with or complement ongoing Federal data initiatives or the implementation of new legislation, such as the Foundations for Evidence-based Policy Making Act of 2018, with rationale for inclusion.
- Actions in this draft Year-1 Action Plan that should be omitted, with rationale for omission.
- Any edits and additional detail to ensure that the actions accurately and effectively describe needed activities, responsible entities, metrics for assessing progress, and timelines for completion.
- Information about the implementation resources necessary to ensure success of these action steps.
