Last Thursday June 10, I had the honor of helping to open the DATA Act Summit. The event brought government and industry leaders together to discuss how best to implement this important statute, which will provide for better visibility into financial activities across the government. A year and a month after enactment, the Administration’s actions to carry out DATA Act provisions – along with support and involvement from industry partners – all point to a successful path forward.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs may be the second
largest federal agency, but it runs the largest medical system
in the United States, providing care to about six million
veterans and their families who depend on it.
