The transparency of CBO’s work has always been a priority, and the agency has added and shifted resources to redouble its efforts in that area. CBO has three goals in being transparent:
CBO aims to enhance the credibility of its work by showing how it relies on data, professional research, and expert feedback.
CBO seeks to promote a thorough understanding of its analyses by sharing information in an accessible, clear, and detailed manner.
CBO wants to help people gauge how its estimates might change if policies or circumstances were different.
In the final episode of CBO’s three-part pilot podcast series, Deborah Kilroe, Mark Hadley, and Keith Hall discuss how the agency has undertaken many activities supporting progress toward those three overarching goals.
