The Project Open Data Dashboard is a website enabling Federal agencies, industry, and the general public and other stakeholders to view details on how Federal agencies are progressing on implementing M-13-13 Open Data Policy—Managing Information as an Asset.


The Project Open Data Dashboard is informed by M-13-13, the Project Open Data Implementation Guide, the Open Data Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) Goal, and the Integrated Data Collection Open Data Progress, Use, and Impact questions. The Project Open Dashboard tracks progress in two ways:

  1. Quarterly review by OMB staff of Leading Indicators in six categories: Enterprise Data Inventory, Public Data Listing, Public Engagement, Privacy & Security, Human Capital, and Use & Impact. For more information see Leading Indicators Strategy Rubric.

  2. Automated metrics determined by a script that analyzes [agency.gov] /data.json, /digitalstrategy.json, and /data files every 24 hours until the end of the quarter when a historic snapshot is generated. For more information see Documentation.

Open Source
