EPA's Evidence Act officer honored for using data in program evaluation

Everybody talks about using data to inform decision making about meeting the mandates of the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act, a.k.a. the Evidence Act, but fewer actually do it. Katherine Dawes is one of those outstanding exceptions. She’s the acting evaluation officer at the EPA and as of last week, a recipient of the Data Coalition’s 2021 Annual Datum Awards. She joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to talk more about her role.
