Data Governance Council

The Evidence Based Policy Making Act requires all agencies to create a Data Governance Body led by their Chief Data Officer (CDO). The CDO at EPA established a Data Governance Council consisting of senior staff who are experienced and active data managers, analysts and practitioners. This council will advise and support the CDO in creating ongoing frameworks and strategies for governing data throughout the information lifecycle. The council charter and roster can be accessed here.
