Assessment Summary

EDI: Has not updated since April 2014.

Public Engagement: ED actively engages with the user community in a variety of data jams and datapaloozas, as discussed on the /digitalstrategy page. The ED Homeroom blog provides an avenue for public two-way communication with data consumers and could be enhanced further with more frequent posts and interaction.

Use & Impact: Detailed responses reflect serious engagement with data consumers. ED serves as an example other agencies should follow.
