The Digital Accountability & Transparency Act (DATA), H.R. 2146not accurate, not consistent, not complete and not useful. H.R. 2146, the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA Act), will implement strong reporting standards, allowing fractured and ineffective reporting systems to be streamlined, providing useful information to policymakers, agency managers, and the American people. The DATA Act will reduce bureaucratic waste, strengthen our ability to prevent and prosecute fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars, and help Congress reduce federal spending- saving billions of dollars each year. The Data Act, based on a working system, is bipartisan, bicameral, and broadly supported. Recent endorsement letters include:
- 24-Member Open Government Coalition including the Sunlight Foundation, the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
- The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)
- Level One Technologies
- Americans for Tax Reform (ATR)
