Earlier this week, we hosted our second Grant Innovation Forum, sponsored by MorganFranklin Consulting and hosted by The Aspen Institute. The discussion was informed by our recently published report on the transformation of federal grant reporting titled Transforming Grant Reporting. Grant leaders from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Education, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the White House, and private sector gathered to discuss challenges facing the grantee and grantor community and how grant data can be used to better serve citizens.
Across government, compliance, and the private sector, there’s a new eagerness to standardize previously-unruly data sets, analyze them for game-changing insights, and share them more widely. At Data Transparency 2017 in Washington on Tuesday, September 26th, we’ll lead you on a tour through all these changes. You’ll learn how better data is making our government more governable, cutting the chaos and cost of compliance, and providing new value in the private sector.
There is a way to simplify regulatory compliance, streamline these processes, and save these costs. And it can be done without deregulating and without changing the substance of the information companies report to government. Australia’s Standard Business Reporting program shows us how.
