Where Do We Start and Where Are We Going? Bringing Data Curation to the Federal Reserve

Presenter 1
San Cannon
Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

The development of data curation services in support of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is a new focus and a central activity for a new group at the Center for the Advancement of Data and Research in Economics. This presentation will outline the foundational work done to bring a full suite of services to the research community, including the creation of new job families, education of HR and other support staff, development of strategic plans, socialization with senior management, development of new business process and evaluation of technology and applications. CADRE has moved the Bank from zero data curation activities to a strategically developed and aligned staff of eight that provide support across the research lifecycle using several new processes and platforms in just a year. This presentation will outline the achievements, set backs, opportunities, and lessons learned.
