US Treasury Schema Published
After a year of revisions and “hundreds” of comments, the US Treasury has released a near final version of its schema outlining data definition standards to be used by federal agencies in reporting spending under the DATA Act. The DATA Act Information Model Schema (DAIMS) v1.0 gives an overall view of the hundreds of distinct data elements that will go into implementing the DATA Act, as well as technical guidance for federal agencies about what data to report to Treasury and submission formats. The schema can also help the public better understand the complexity of tracking federal spending by highlighting the interdependencies and links between agencies. Learn more.
