With public trust in government hovering at a mere 20 percent, government is not communicating its significant activities effectively. In this important session, attendees will explore ways to spread the word about government successes and enhance accountability through impact reporting.
Government has barely scratched the surface of what is possible in communicating results with the American public and fully utilizing information as a strategic asset. With big data and the tools to turn it into information, financial reporting models must be transformed, in accordance with the President’s Management Agenda (PMA), to regain public trust, increase government effectiveness, grow the economy, facilitate oversight and promote transparency.
