Office of Data Governance and Analytics Data Governance Course
Since June 2020, 228 state employees have taken the Office of Data Governance and Analytics Data Governance course! We're on a mission to have every state employee take this course that focuses on basic data concepts such as the data governance framework for the Commonwealth of Virginia, master data, metadata, open data policies, and more. State employees at all levels of the organization play a role in leveraging data as an enterprise asset. This course provides essential information toward ensuring that state employees understand the importance of data governance and evidence-based decision making.

CoVERED

The Office of Data Governance and Analytics has developed the Commonwealth of Virginia Entity Resolution for Enterprise Data (CoVERED). This solution ingests two data streams separating the attributes that identify individuals (PII) from those that characterize the government services they receive by leveraging partnerships with executive branch agencies and other organizations through the Commonwealth Data Trust. The goal of CoVERED is to drive impact through insight, not identification.
