data-federation-project - A project focused on tools and best practices to supported federated data collection efforts


Federated data refers to data that are aggregated across a number of organizations, departments or agencies at various scales. Managing the volume, quality and completeness of data coming in from multiple sources is a common challenge for government agencies charged with collecting and maintaining domain-specific information. This project aims to address this challenge by providing ways to ingest data more easily, and provide real-time user feedback so that data contributors can make corrections before it is submitted to a central repository. Federated data efforts are increasingly seen as an engine for transparency, economic growth, and accountability, yet collecting this kind of data remains a challenge. Despite the fact that efforts of this sort are increasing in frequency, each new effort is still improvising solutions in terms of processes, tooling, and compliance infrastructure.
