The federal government has set ambitious performance goals for itself ranging from Pentagon audit readiness to sustainable infrastructure, but the data it needs to achieve these goals is not always readily available. From military vehicles and weapons systems to federal facilities and utilities, agencies can improve information collection to enhance mission-effectiveness. 

Government Business Council and AT&T launched a research campaign in November 2013 to understand the current state of information collection across federal agencies and how it can be improved. The research campaign included an insight report based on a survey of 355 senior federal managers from civilian and defense agencies, two issue briefs and two infographics illustrating key findings regarding civilian and defense information collection.
