Audit of the Department of Health and Human Services' Progress Toward Compliance With the Geospatial Data Act of 2018

The President signed into law the Geospatial Data Act of 2018 (GDA) as P.L. No. 115­254 on October 5, 2018. GDA fosters efficient management of geospatial data, technologies, and infrastructure through enhanced coordination among Federal, State, local, and Tribal Governments, the private sector, and academia. GDA establishes responsibilities and reporting requirements for covered agencies. Additionally, GDA requires the inspector general of each executive department (or the senior ethics official of each executive department without an inspector general) to submit to Congress not less than once every 2 years an audit of the collection, production, acquisition, maintenance, distribution, use, and preservation of geospatial data by Federal agencies.

The purpose of this audit is to determine the Department of Health and Human Services' progress toward compliance with GDA.
