Federal Spending Transparency DATA Act and FFATA Collaboration Space

From the website:

We Need Your Feedback!

In conjunction with the recent enactment of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) (Pub. L. 113-101) and our ongoing efforts to improve federal spending data under the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (FFATA), the federal government is working to establish government-wide financial data standards and increase the availability, accuracy, and usefulness of federal spending information.

To make sure that we implement the data standards and improvements successfully, we need feedback from stakeholders outside the federal government (that’s you). We’ve created a collaboration space to foster two-way communication and the open exchange of ideas between federal and non-federal stakeholders.


How to Participate


Beginning in March 2015, we’ll be using Github issues to track the conversation around and proposed changes to each data element. (If you’ve never used GitHub, you can find a great overview tutorial here.) Each data element will have its own issue and will be tagged with a descriptive category (such as awardee or account information). To join the discussion about a certain element, simply post a comment on that element’s issue. All discussion participants will be able to read and respond to your feedback.
