Why open data standards make good sense, now more than ever

XBRL and other standards could improve government efficiency. Open standards, such as XBRL, could make it easier for agencies to process and share essential business information.

Transparency & Accountability - Data Transparency Coalition launches by Hudson Hollister

Transparency & Accountability and our Government - an idea whose time has come!

 

This is the latest venture from our friend, Hudson Hollister, former general counsel to the US House Government Oversight Committee (Issa). Hudson was at the epicenter of applying structured data and transparency concepts to the federal government. His work with the DATA Act and other key legislative issues is critical to getting a handle on government accountability. We (Maryland Association of CPAs) will be joining this group and helping to move ths iagenda forward. 

 

Hudson will be speaking at MACPA's Innovation Summit on June 27th at Martin's West in Baltimore, Maryland - info http://cpa.tc/2012summit

Behind That Green Eyeshade Rests The Soul Of A Business Innovator

I don't usually look to accountants as a source of cutting-edge business innovation. After all, we want our accountants to be firmly rooted in reality and not prone to flights of fancy. But , no foolin', the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants (MACPA) is a global pioneer in an innovative reporting system ideally matched to today's challenges facing business and government.If yours is a publicly-traded company, you might have heard about XBRL, the eXtensible Business Reporting Language, because most of them must now file SEC reports using XBRL "tags" ( a system of "information about information" inserted to bracket a piece of data and give it context. For example, who knows what 6 refers to when seen by itself, but if we see it bracketed by an XBRL tag, 6 we know instantly). Or, if you're with a bank, you may know that banks have had to report to the FDIC using XBRL.
