The latest RFQ is Data Analytics: Data Visualization for the Office of the Chief Data Officer.
“HUD has a need to create data visualizations that increase financial transparency and program effectiveness within HUD by connecting program, financial, and human capital information (e.g., salary and expenditure information).

This will be an optional task.” View the full RFQ here.
