What it is

Integrated Data Systems (IDS) are unique with each system often serving distinct data providers, partners, and governing structures. We support public agencies in ensuring that their IDS protects the privacy of people and data through appropriate governance and effective policies and procedures.

DISC efforts encourage data integration across sectors to provide a more complete picture for practical outcomes. DISC helps public agencies identify areas of improvement and gain an experienced thought partner for successful planning and administration of their IDS.
