As It Becomes Law, Learn More Now About the DATA Act

April 29, 2014 | By Jerry Ashworth | Post a Comment

untitled-1282930-mIt’s been many, many months in the making but the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act, better known as the DATA Act, is finally becoming a law. Now the question is, “What next?” What does this mean? If you want to find out more about the DATA Act, have we got something for you!

Thompson Information Services will be hosting a very important webinar on this topic tomorrow (Wednesday) starting at 2 p.m. Eastern, with our own Karen Norris, managing editor of grants publications, as the featured speaker.

The DATA Act will tie-in closely with the Office of Management and Budget’s new grant reform guidance. Both grantors and grantees would have to adjust to new requirements and possibly new federal electronic systems. Raising your awareness of the key components in this proposed legislation will allow you to get out in front of what might be on the way. This webinar, entitled “DATA Act: Rewired,” will show you how.

And if you want to know more about another key issue in grants management, Thompson will host another webinar on May 15 at 1 p.m. Eastern entitled “Subrecipient Monitoring Under the New Grants Reform Guidance.” The featured speaker for this presentation will be Jennifer Segal, partner with Brustein and Manasevit.

Remember, both webinars offer attendees continuing professional education credits, as well as critical training on the future of grants oversight to keep them prepared. If you are interested in attending either webinar or both, go to to register. Other grant-related webinars of interest will be coming this summer. Stay tuned and stay informed!
