Line-of-Sight Newsletter 13 February 2024

Kahua’s construction program and project management software enables innovation with collaborative purpose-built solutions for owners, program managers, general contractors and subcontractors.


Jon Shelness, President, My Property ID Registry, is a tireless advocate of organizations better understanding the value and uses of 21st century tracing technology to assist law enforcement in returning the billions in U.S. dollars of lost and stolen property in their possession. Supply-Chain theft is a particularly daunting problem that can begin to be addressed with advanced traceability. Join us on ALN Th@3 pm ET this week as we learn from Mr. Shelness what federal initiatives exist, how they can be expanded, and the critical role a “culture of asset management” can play in improving traceability.


Infrastructure Data Success

The success of U.S. federal infrastructure legislation leads to a series of critical decision making that can be assisted with blended data – the combination of previously collected data sources. However, there is also a heightened need for responsible stewardship for that data and new data generated as projects move forward. The National Academies has published “Toward a 21st Century National Infrastructure: Managing Privacy and Confidentiality with Blended Data” to provide a framework for managing the unique issues generated with blended data. The report draws on recent legislation, regulations, and guidance to highlight opportunities and assess risks.


Contribute to Sustainable Development
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established ISO/PC 343 – Sustainable Development Goals Management to standardize processes for repeatable successes. There are two work programs at this time that will: 1) establish requirements for; and 2) create guidelines for contributing to UN Sustainable Development Goals Management Systems. Denmark is the secretariat for ISO/PC 343. In the U.S., ANSI is coordinating volunteer involvement. Contact the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) at Due to the generous support of USAID, there is no membership fee for participation in the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to PC 343.
