The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday [11/18] voted overwhelmingly in favor — 388 to 1 — of H.R. 2061, otherwise known as the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act (DATA).
Sponsored by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the bill is intended to increase transparency around government spending by increasing financial reporting requirements for federal agencies. It would expand the amount of data reported online at USASpending.gov, require federal inspectors general to regularly review spending data for accuracy, and mandate the creation of a website updating the public about activities to reduce waste, fraud and abuse in government spending.
GovSec West is the leading event for homeland security, law enforcement, cyber and physical Security professionals looking for proven strategies and technologies to protect our communities, critical infrastructures, and key assets.
The conference is returning to Texas November 18th – 20th at the Gaylord Texan Resort providing valuable information from top government security experts to help fulfill your mission.

In the wake of the sudden, unexpected decision to postpone the GEOINT 2013 Symposium, which was scheduled to be held in Tampa Oct. 13-16, more than 200 Intelligence Community members gathered Oct. 15 for a USGIF special event at the Embassy Suites in Springfield, VA.
As a result of the ongoing government shutdown, USGIF announced Oct. 8 the decision to postpone its 10th annual GEOINT Symposium to April 2014. The special event offered community members the opportunity to reflect upon this news, look ahead to the spring, and network.
USGIF CEO Keith Masback said there is “no playbook” for postponing an event the size of the GEOINT Symposium, which was expected to bring more than 4,000 attendees and around $5 million in revenue to the Tampa Bay area.
