The Department of Defense and the Department of Commerce are delaying an agreement again that would codify data-sharing between the two agencies. Mike Peckham, managing director for advisory at KPMG U.S. and former executive director of financial management at HHS, explains the progress federal agencies have made sharing data.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate will take a three-step approach to bring new technology into the department and to market. The department’s new partnership guide lays out the journey for potential partners.
