The Data Foundation research is in three main areas:
- 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.
- Modernizing compliance data for efficiency and effectiveness. By replacing form-based compliance with data-centric reporting, we reduce compliance costs and enable better oversight.
- 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.
