2020 Action Plan Progress

The Federal Data Strategy provides a common set of data principles and best practices. The 2020 Action Plan identifies milestones that are essential for establishing processes, building capacity, and aligning existing efforts. This initial plan builds a solid foundation that will support implementation of the strategy over the next decade. This page will showcase progress, measurements, and metrics collected and reported on 65 milestones from 20 actions. We will track progress on the 2020 Action Plan milestones continuously throughout the year. As milestones are completed, information will be uploaded to this page. Once this page is fully operational, you will be able to check agency activity on every milestone.

This page was last updated on January 29, 2021. If your agency's progress since that day is not reflected in the information below, please send an email to the Federal Data Strategy team at datastrategy@omb.eop.gov.
