Whitehouse – Government “Big Data”; Request for Information RFI

The Whitehouse has issued an RFI on the topic of Big Data. Details are as follows

On January 17, 2014, President Obama called for senior government officials to lead a comprehensive review of the ways in which “big data” will affect how Americans live and work, and the implications of collecting, analyzing and using such data for privacy, the economy, and public policy. The President requested that the review examine challenges confronted by both the public and private sectors; whether the United States can forge international norms on how to manage this data; and how we can continue to promote the free flow of information in ways that are consistent with both privacy and security. Once complete, the review will result in a report that anticipates future technological trends and frames the key questions that the collection, analysis, and use of “big data” raise for our government and nation. This notice solicits public input to inform this effort
