Assessment Summary

EDI: Solid growth in the EDI over the past quarter, and all 12 DOL bureaus are now represented. However, there is no status update on where DOL stands in meeting its milestones through November 2014.

PDL: High rate of invalid metadata, preventing hundreds of datasets from being listed on data.gov.

Public Engagement: DOT maintains a website for feedback, opendata@dot.gov, but there is no proof of two-way communication or a process of prioritization based on customer feedback.

Use & Impact: DOT provided 5 of 5 requested users, and although the qualitative responses could use more detail, there is a clear indication of routine interaction with the user community.
