Assessment Summary

The General Services Administration should be applauded for the increase in their licensing documentation, having 100% valid data.json, and providing an up-to-date Data Publication Process on the /digitalstrategy page.

The General Services Administration needs to address the following issues in their Enterprise Data Inventory: * Provides a public EDI file, but fails to: update it for this quarter (only public datasets were added), * 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).

The General Services Administration needs to address the following issues in their Public Data Listing: * Fails to create a human-readable list of all datasets.

Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
GSA's open data is used to promote cost efficiency, identify new opportunities, and allow vendors to validate data. Vendors doing business with GSA use specific datasets to review that their Product information is correctly displayed. Individuals also use our datasets to identify properties for sale or lease.
Value or impact of data
See below Primary data discovery channels
The primary channels for users to learn about Agency data are Data.gov and Agency-sponsored events. We held our second Hackathon on October 16th and are planning a Governmentwide Earth Day Hackathon to be held on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2016. We utilize social media to push information about new datasets, APIs, and Hackathons.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
To improve the usability of Agency data, users have suggested that we update the data more frequently and validate that the POCs for the datasets are correct.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
Additional Agency data resources requested by users include travel, contract award, contract acquisition data, and open data center locations.
