OMB Issues Memorandum to Improve Statistical Activities through Interagency Collaboration

This memorandum strongly encourages the Federal statistical agencies and units, and their parent Departments, to build interagency collaboration that will help the Federal statistical community more effectively meet the information needs of the 21st century.

My memorandum of November 26, 2014, on Department Support for Implementation of Statistical Policy Directive No. 1, asked each Department and Agency hosting a Federal statistical agency or unit to report on its production and dissemination of relevant and timely¬† information, such as how the Department or Agency “facilitates collaboration across other Federal agencies.”¬† In their responses, Departments and Agencies underscored the fundamental importance of such interagency collaboration in maintaining relevant, timely, and accurate Federal statistics in an environment of rapidly changing information technology.
