The uniform would have clashed with his make-up.
"Originally, Data was going to be the Chief Science Officer on the Enterprise (like Spock was on the original "Star Trek" (1966)) and wear a blue uniform. However, the color blue clashed with the android make-up and the idea was changed. Data was reassigned as the Chief Operations Officer and sported a gold uniform"
