DATA Act Information Model Schema (DAIMS)

The DATA Act Information Model Schema (DAIMS) is the authoritative source for the terms, definitions, formats, and structures for hundreds of distinct data elements that tell the story of how federal dollars are spent. DAIMS gives federal agencies guidance about what data to report to Treasury, where to get that data, and how to submit it.
