Microsoft PowerPoint - DATA Act Briefing for IRC USSGL
DATA Act Implementation Update Briefing for the USSGLIRC May 14, 2015 1 DATA Act Goals Expand the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 by disclosing direct federal agency expenditures and linking federal contract, loan, and grant spending information to programs of federal agencies to enable taxpayers and policy makers to track federal spending more effectively. Provide consistent, reliable, and searchable governmentwide spending data that is displayed accurately for taxpayers and policy makers on the USASpending.gov website. Analyze federal spending data to proactively prevent waste, fraud, abuse, and improper payments. Simplify reporting for entities receiving federal funds by streamlining reporting requirements and reducing compliance costs while improving transparency. Improve the quality of data submitted to USASpending.gov by holding federal agencies accountable for the completeness and accuracy of the data submitted.
