Marisa Roinestad, associate deputy assistant inspector general for Auditing at the General Services Administration’s IG Office, discusses oversight of the agency’s DATA Act submission, and how GSA fared in their most recent evaluation.

The Digital Accountability and Transparency Act requires agencies to produce a regular report to ensure that they are using data correctly and efficiently.  Marisa Roinestad, associate deputy assistant inspector general for Auditing at the GSA IG Office, says that GSA worked very hard to improve their audit results.

“The data elements have very specific definitions. Information means a certain thing needs to be formatted in a certain way. Getting that word out to all of the procurement officials in the agency, and then ensuring a number of information systems, many of them legacy systems, are able to flow that information up to the DATA act broker, which is its information system,” Roinestad said.
