Assessment Summary

The Environmental Protection Agency should be applauded for their increase in licensing documentation (though 'Other License Provided' should be updated with specific licensing information), having 100% valid data.json, and successfully pointing to Data.gov for a human-readable list of all datasets at [agency].gov/data.

The Environmental Protection Agency needs to address the following issues in their Enterprise Data Inventory: * Provides a public EDI file, but fails to: provide it in the correct format, provide it as a dataset, (a minor point: the metadata format is incorrect, listing it as HTML on Data.gov: http://catalog.data.gov/dataset/u-s-environmental-protection-agencys-enterprise-data-inventory) * Fails to organize data assets in to Collections * Fails to document all non-public and restricted datasets, redactions, restrictive licenses and provides an explanation for non-disclosure (in the rights field) * Of note: only 1 Bureau and 5 Programs are cataloged and non-public and restricted public cataloging is much slower than other agencies.
