Research Areas

The Data Foundation research is in three main areas:

  1. Deploying government data for public good. By transforming public-sector information from disconnected documents into standardized, open data, we are making governments more transparent on the outside and more efficient on the inside.
  2. Modernizing compliance data for efficiency and effectiveness. By replacing form-based compliance with data-centric reporting, we reduce compliance costs and enable better oversight.
  3. Harnessing private-sector data to improve business and society. By encouraging private-sector companies and nonprofits to open their operational data for broader use, we create opportunities for feedback, collaboration, and insight.
