Advisory panel looks for 'moonshot' in Commerce data
April 24, 2015
The inaugural meeting of the Commerce Data Advisory Council discussed how the Commerce Department can take their troves of data to the next level for the American public.
David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
The General Services Administration is stepping up its efforts to support the government in its response to Hurricane Sandy, said Darren Blue, associate administrator, GSA Office of Emergency Response and Recovery.
In a new blog post, Blue said before and during the storm, GSA secured some 2,100 federal facilities in the path of Hurricane Sandy.
“Although some federal buildings are still closed to the public, the federal government operated during the storm and continues operating to ensure the safety of our citizens and effective response to the storm,” Blue said. “While many GSA employees in the storm’s path still cannot make it into the office, many of us are using telework to work from alternate locations to ensure that we are meeting our responsibilities to our fellow agencies and the American people.”
