Although data-informed, collaborative interactions lay the foundation of QRIS, the skills and strategies needed to use data effectively can be easily underdeveloped or overlooked. In this session of Let’s Talk, participants from the BUILD Initiative Data Community of Practice, a group of QRIS professionals from across the country, discuss approaches to increasing data capacity, literacy and impact within QRIS. In addition, session contributors outline “A QRIS Practical Data User’s Guide,” a guidebook of strategies and practices developed by the group.

What do you think of “A QRIS Practical Data User’s Guide”? Email Debi Mathias at to share your feedback or tell us how you might implement the principles detailed in the report.
