Projects

Phase 4

Eligibility APIs Initiative

Shared web services that could help states make eligibility determinations for human services programs

The Eligibility APIs project is exploring how federal agencies could use a centralized web service, or eligibility API, to deliver their policy directly to states in a format they can ingest and utilize. We seek to pilot a new model where policy changes at the federal level will be made once, centrally, and propagate outward to states (rather than states each having to undertake a costly, redundant, time-consuming, error-prone process to update systems individually). We’re partnering with programs at the federal and state levels to understand their unique challenges and learn how to make this model viable across the wide variety of eligibility-based scenarios.

Phase 4

U.S. Data Federation

Tools and best practices to support data exchange and collection efforts across government

Federated data refers to data that are aggregated across a number of different sources. In government, these sources are often organizations, departments or agencies at various scales and levels, from federal down to local. Federated data efforts are increasingly seen as engines for transparency, economic growth, and accountability, but they present unique challenges compared to single-set data efforts. Despite the fact that federated data efforts are increasing in frequency, most standard guidance and best practices used by data practitioners in government pertain to the data after it’s consolidated into one usable data set. Before this point, many practitioners are still improvising solutions in terms of standards definition, data collection, and data validation.

The Data Federation aims to address these challenges by focusing on supporting the critical early stages of federated data work. It seeks to research and develop reusable tools and approaches that streamline this stage of complex data work and accelerate a practitioners’ path toward having an analyzable data set from which to generate meaningful findings.

Phase 3

Federal Grantee Reporting

Improving the experience of federal grant reporting

The 10x Federal Grantee Reporting project is building a prospective shared solution for the single audit finding resolution process. This is a high-priority element of post-award financial grant reporting.

The prototype dramatically streamlines the finding resolution process and gives agencies unprecedented visibility into single audit findings relevant to their shared grantees. This reduces costly and duplicative efforts for agencies and grantees alike.

The prototype also provides easier access to data, reducing the multi-day process to less than five minutes. This stands to help auditors, grant managers, agency CFOs and grantees.

Phase 3

Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS)

The application of machine learning to improve customer service in government

USA.gov and Gobierno.USA.gov provide a vital service: connecting members of the public with official information about government services. In an effort to better serve the public, both sites collect and act on feedback from users. Both sites collect feedback through various channels: call centers, chat feature, sitewide surveys, and page-level surveys. Our research is focused almost entirely on page-level surveys. Page-level surveys appear in nearly every content page, directory record page, and state details pages with content that answers users questions.

Phase 3

Navigating the Paperwork Reduction Act

A clear introduction to the clearance process around the PRA

The PRA Guide is a plain language guide which answers the most common questions like, “What is the PRA for?”, “Do I need clearance?”, and “What’s the process?”

The PRA Guide aims to give federal employees confidence in working with the PRA and lowering the barriers to working effectively with the public.
