Supporting the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission by Providing Data Quality Management

FAIRFAX, VA – November 14, 2017 – The commodity futures and swaps markets are essential to the growth of the U.S. economy, yet businesses and investors are often at risk of market fraud, manipulation, or abusive practices. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) aims to protect market users and their funds, consumers, and the public from fraudulent activities. In support of this mission, Salient CRGT, Inc. was awarded a subcontract by Oasis Systems, LLC to support the Data Analysis, Analytics, Processing, Quality and Outputs/Reports/Presentation Task Order to provide data analytics to CFTC. This subcontract has an anticipated value of $5 million.

As a subcontractor to Oasis, Salient CRGT will support the CFTC staff in reviewing, manipulating, visualizing, and understanding the data submitted in order to satisfy the mission of the CFTC. The team will also conduct data quality management activities that improve data quality for a designated, high-volume data stream.

“Data analytics is one of our fastest growing segments and plays a pivotal role in maximizing enforcement, surveillance, and compliance,” said Ken Raffel, SVP of Data Analytics at Salient CRGT. “Our big data services help the CFTC in fostering open, transparent, competitive, and financially sound markets.”

“The CFTC is a tremendous proponent in identifying and ceasing potential fraudulent practices that victimize so many every year,” said Tom Ferrando, President of Salient CRGT. “Our team’s experience, having delivered over 450 data analytics projects across more than 30 federal agencies, ensures our data analytics services will make an immediate positive impact to assist the CFTC ‘s in ensuring the integrity of the futures and swaps market.”
