To some extent (25-50%) To what extent is your agency’s Enterprise Data Inventory (EDI) complete?
See below What steps have you taken to ensure your Enterprise Data Inventory is complete
"USDA has 100% compliance as of this quarter for licensing information. USDA has issued guidance on converting Privacy Impact Assessments into CKAN to increase our private data assets in the Enterprise Data Inventory. This effort is still ongoing. We are also looking at ways to include FOIA and other processes for data releases into the Enterprise Data Inventory, which will increase the completeness of the USDA EDI. USDA has also modified the Acquisition Approval Request process to include submitting data for new acquisitions to the Enterprise Data Inventory. This modification took place in October of 2016. We are now going to begin analyzing data to ensure new acquisitions are entered into EDI."

The Department of Agriculture (USDA) implemented a four step data publication process.* This multi-step dataset review process involves multiple internal stakeholders such as Data Stewards, Chief Information Officers, Privacy Officers, agency legal staff, and Information Security System Program Managers, Records Managers, and Controlled Unclassified Information managers. The purpose of this multi-perspective approach is to ensure that datasets are adequately reviewed and approved prior to release.
