The COVID-19 pandemic highlights the importance of using data and collaborating across the government. Sharing lessons learned, resources, and data challenges is critical to advancing our ability to support agency decision making - both in mission achievement and how COVID-19 impacts the Federal workforce. Additionally, agency representatives can strengthen their own analytics efforts, frameworks, and methodologies by leveraging and integrating knowledge from their counterparts across government.
Why this matters to the CDO Council
To effectively and efficiently respond to emergency situations like the Coronavirus pandemic, it is critical that the CDO Council has the structure and tools in place to facilitate a whole-of-government approach to tracking and supporting the data and decision-making tools agencies need to ensure a data-driven and equitable response.
