The Department is continuously improving the Enterprise Data Inventory. This quarter an audit of the inventory was conducted to verify data collections that are available to the public; to identify discrepancies and areas for improvements; and to confirm data is readily available in various formats. The Department has also developed a directive that establishes a structure for sustainable data management regarding the collection, processing, and dissemination of the data throughout the information lifecycle. This directive integrates the roles and responsibilities of stewarding data offices to maintain the Enterprise Data Inventory. The results of both the audit and the directive will streamline future enhancements and updates to the Inventory.

Much of the information collected by the Department of Education is protected by the privacy or confidentiality provisions of one or more federal statutes. These include: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), The Education Sciences Reform Act (ESRA), and The Privacy Act of 1974. To help ensure that the Department does not release any information that would violate the privacy of students or other individuals in violation of these statutes, the Department has implemented a disclosure review process for its public data releases. Information collections containing data protected by one or more of these statutes are reviewed and approved for release by one of the Department's disclosure review boards, prior to their release to the public.
