Incompatable data and data systems
Departments: DOE, DOH, DHS, probably others
Challenge: Incompatible data systems at the federal/state/city & county levels. Overlapping collection of the same data, but no sharing, not possible to share because of systems, calling data fields different things, Data is not used friendly. Old systems that can not extract data in usable forms for technology today.
Suggested Solution: Develop standard date field names and define what those data fields are supposed to capture. Create standard operating procedures for data among the different levels of government and across departments. Allow access of certified contractors to data to prevent duplication of gathering and re-entering of the data.
