Data and Transparency Panel (DTP)

History of Data and Transparency Panel (DTP)

Act 1282 of 2015 established the Open Data and Transparency Task Force to determine the best practices to achieve the most efficient systems for maintaining and delivering the state’s public records and data. Based on the recommendations that came out of the Task Force, Act 912 of 2017 was passed, creating the Data and Transparency Panel (DTP) within the Department of Information Systems to provide recommendations on data governance and data sharing (A.C.A. § 25-4-127).

Following the passage of Act 910 of 2019, the Transformation and Efficiencies Act, the Department of Information Systems was renamed the Division of Information Systems (DIS) and moved under the new Department of Transformation and Shared Services (A.C.A. § 25-4-127). During the 2021 General Session, Act 912 of 2017 was amended, moving the Data and Transparency Panel (DTP) duties directly under the Department of Transformation and Shared Services (TSS) and aligning the membership to correspond to the 15 state cabinet departments Act 742 of 2021.
