As data increasingly help drive efficiency and effectiveness of public services, public trust in the Government’s good stewardship of data is essential. The Federal Government has a dedicated workforce that has long worked to ensure the proper management and security of personal information held by Federal agencies. Agencies are required to routinely review, assess, and publicly report on their collection and use of personal information. To improve transparency and accountability of Federal data collection, the Administration will:
-Improve the Accessibility of Privacy Policies and Compliance Reports. To make it easier for citizens to find and understand what information the Government collects and maintains, Federal agencies will make it easier for the public to access, download, and search online for publicly-available privacy policies and privacy compliance reports.
-Update and Improve Reporting on Federal Agency Data Policies and Practices. Agencies will collaborate to review the content of publicly-available privacy compliance reports and to consider best practices to ensure that the reports provide meaningful information about the Federal Government’s management of personal information.
