1.2.4 Develop Data Inventory Schedule - Summary

Summarize the Inventory Schedule


Over the past several months, the USDA has focused its Open Data efforts on establishing a framework to enhance, enrich, and open, to the extent practicable, its Enterprise Data Inventory (EDI) and to ensure the Department and its component Agencies are prepared to identify,
correctly document, and submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on November 30, 2014 a comprehensive EDI. In so doing, the USDA has already achieved several internal milestones that lay the groundwork for the Department's future Open Data efforts and position the USDA to meet OMB's Open Data requirements. The following milestones are among the Department's recent Open Data achievements:

1.2.5 Develop Data Inventory Schedule - Milestones

TitleMilestone 1 - Expand and Open EDI
Description
Milestone DateFebruary 28, 2014
Description of how this milestone expands the InventoryThe USDA will initially focus on expanding and opening its Enterprise Data Inventory. To this end, the Open Data Council, in collaboration with Agency CIOs, Data Stewards, and the Open Data Working Group (ODWG), will continue to work with the USDA's Privacy Officers to identify, prioritize and submit additional public, non-public, and restricted-public datasets to the Department. In addition, the ODC and ODWG will continue the development of an Open Data process and guidance that expedite the publication of its datasets in the future. At the end of Q1, the USDA will submit an updated EDI to OMB.

TitleMilestone 2 - Enrich EDI and Public Datasets
Description
Milestone DateMay 31, 2014
Description of how this milestone expands the InventoryOver the second quarter, from February 28 to May 31, the USDA and its component agencies will continue to input into its EDI additional datasets. The Department will also continue to collaborate with its Data Stewards to update its customer feedback and outreach efforts. At the end of Q2, the USDA will submit an updated EDI to OMB.

TitleMilestone 3 - Expand, Enrich, and Open EDI
Description
Milestone DateAugust 30, 2014
Description of how this milestone expands the InventoryIn the third quarter of the Open Data effort, the USDA will review and analyze its current dataset inventory, publication process, and customer feedback mechanisms. The results of the analysis will inform whether the Department needs to adjust its Open Data strategy and will help the Department prioritize the submission and release of its datasets in Q4. At the end of Q3, the USDA will submit an updated EDI to OMB.

1.2.6 Develop Customer Feedback Process

Describe the agency's process to engage with customers



1.2.7 Develop Data Publication Process

Describe the agency's data publication process


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.
