Call for Use Cases to Inform the First Federal Data Strategy

The Data Incubator Project is soliciting input and expertise in use cases that require new platforms and approaches to make use of confidential microdata. This call is in support of the Federal Government’s commitment to create a comprehensive Federal Data Strategy as part of the Cross-Agency Priority Goal Leveraging Data as a Strategic Asset.

The Federal Data Strategy development team is particularly interested in finding out how secure remote access data facilities could help achieve your priority goals and learning about what such facilities are available for governmental use.

Please submit use cases by July 27, 2018 at strategy.data.gov.
