Assessment Summary

EDI: No growth since the previous quarter, and no milestone updates for November 2014. A google search of "site:nsf.gov filetype:xls OR filetype:csv OR filetype:xlsx OR filetype:xml" returned more than 40,000 results, and although this is an imperfect measure, suggests there may be additional NSF datasets available.

PDL: No growth since the previous quarter, and NSF has not built a /data page. /data redirects to /digitalstrategy.

Public Engagement: NSF provides an email address, and although this doesn't provide an open channel for two-way communication, NSF has published feedback statistics on http://www.nsf.gov/digitalstrategy.html. This page discusses using IdeaScale to collect customer feedback, but there is no evidence of IdeaScale on the agency's /data/ page to solicit and respond to feedback like some other agencies do.
