DATA Act – Agency Plans for Implementation – Original

May 22, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

By: Steven A. Spillan, Esq.

Course Description: The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act) called on federal agencies to create expanded, uniform reporting for federal grant funds.  Up to now, the focus has been on federal reporting by the agencies themselves but the legislation called for expansion out to those expending federal funds under various programs.  Over the course of the next two years, non-federal entities are likely to find themselves with new reporting requirements on all funds spent under a federal program.  This webinar will discuss the requirements of the DATA Act, the agency plans that are expected by the end of April, and what grantees should expect in the coming year.
