What is the CDO Council?

The Federal Chief Data Officers (CDO) Council was established by the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act, which also requires all federal agencies to appoint a CDO.

  • The Council’s vision is to improve government mission achievement and increase the benefits to the Nation through improvement in the management, use, protection, dissemination, and generation of data in government decision-making and operations.
  • The CDO Council has 90+ member CDOs from across the Federal government, as well as representatives from OMB, and other key councils and committees.
  • The CDO Council has working groups that focus on critical topics and committees that help agencies connect and collaborate. The CDO Council also works with other interagency councils on data related topics and activities.
  • The CDO Council engages with the public and private users of Government data to improve data practices and access to data assets.
