From the Government Institute

Federal agencies and stakeholders, such as state and local governments and grantees, are now preparing for a variety of potentially complex reporting and data assurance challenges due to this landmark legislation.

This issue brief highlights key questions for agencies to ask in assessing their readiness to implement the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act of 2014.

In developing these questions that cover five areas (Data; Technology; People; Process; and Business Strategy and Governance), KPMG draws on lessons learned as auditor of 8 of 15 cabinet agencies, and as a principal data architect in developing the data “backbone” of Recovery.gov in support of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board.
