In all forms of funding, the starting point is mandatory and universal data requirements for all agencies receiving government funds. To assess total government funding by feature and agency, the endpoint is a single searchable website. Three components cover the gap between these needs:- 1)100% end-to-end electronic data collection:- All receipts and expenditure transactions, including queries, assessments and invoices, should be electronically obtained, processed and paid for. 2)Data governance for standards across all government entities:- Data standards are rules for defining and documenting data elements that allow incorporation, sharing, and interoperability with precise definitions and semantics. Standardisation can be ensured by the prescription of data elements with all transactions. 3)Technology architecture:- All IT government systems should comply with an open architecture framework prescribed (for example, IndEA) while ensuring robust protection and protecting privacy. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
