Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
The Department is currently developing a process to address all Project Open Data requirements. The Enterprise Data Inventory (EDI) will be updated based on revisions made to the Open Data Policy. Additional enhancements to our data capture system are being made in order to comply with the new guidance received for the FY 2015 Q4 IDC. 1. We are presently developing a process to capture the dataset owners’ “license” and “rights” fields. The EDI will be updated based on revisions made to the Open Data Policy. The existing data capture system is receiving additional enhancements that will ensure system compliance with the new guidance received for the FY 2015 Q4 IDC. 2. The data assets made public as of June 30, 2015, are not part of another dataset. We are updating the process and our software tool to make sure that all released data assets will include “identifier” and “isPartOf” fields if they include individual datasets. 3. In order to enhance our ability to promote improvements that provide greater informational usefulness and public transparency, we are currently developing a bi-directional customer engagement process and survey tools to collect metadata from organizations that access the Department’s information assets published at www.state.gov.
