Hudson Hollister, Executive Director, Data Coalition will speak about the Data Act.
This presentation will explore the history of the DATA Act, put the new law in context with the global open data movement, and share stories of the battles that surrounded its negotiation and passage. In addition, Mr. Hollister will describe the impact of the DATA Act for financial professionals working for federal agencies and for entities that receive federal funds, such as state and local governments. He will explore the analytical opportunities opened up by the adoption of data standards for federal agencies and for state and local governments, focusing on the areas where Congress and the White House are already pursuing such standards.

Danny Kermode, Assistant Director, Utilities and Transporation Commission will speak about XBRL.
This presentation will reflect on the development of data transparency by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission. The commission initiated a lean based process improvement project which introduces the use of interactive data for financial and accounting reports filed with the commission. The project focuses on the use of eXtensable Business Reporting Language, commonly referred to as XBRL, for the reporting format by the state’s regulated energy companies. When completed, all financial and operational data would be tagged and fully searchable reducing costs, eliminating waste, and increasing productivity while maintaining high quality work product.
