The all-day Training Session will be an opportunity for attendees to hear the history of the DATA Act, the intent of the mandate, and associated opportunities resulting from DATA Act standards. Following this introduction to the DATA Act, attendees will learn how federal agencies have standardized data, how data are used across agencies and in the private sector, what challenges shared services and financial management services have encountered, how financial transparency changes government, and how the framework of the DATA Act will continue to transform the nature of spending reporting methods.

In a time too often defined by ad hoc victories, partisanship and short-term thinking, The Door Stop Awards for Transparency recognize those Members of Congress, top government officials and staff who have created consistent, durable and genuine structural changes to public institutions. These good government successes almost always happen quietly and outside the limelight, but have resulted in long-term transparency, greater openness, improved efficiency and effectiveness. The Door Stop Award winners didn’t just open government to the public once, they placed "door stops" ensuring that government never again closes to the American people.
