To a very great extent (>75%) To what extent is your agency’s Enterprise Data Inventory (EDI) complete?
See below What steps have you taken to ensure your Enterprise Data Inventory is complete
NSF appreciates the opportunity to review the quarterly action items to improve and enhance the Enterprise Data Inventory's completeness. To ensure EDI completeness each quarter, NSF conducts a review of agency data sources recently added to our webpages and coordinates with internal NSF POCs to determine if there are new datasets for potential inclusion in the updated EDI. During this process, we also look into ways in which we can improve the quality of our datasets. These data improvements include: reviewing existing datasets and related metadata and adding metadata that will improve access to content; ensuring newly identified agency data sources are added to the updated EDI; ensuring all appropriate data assets are grouped as collections; and including new datasets and/or updating metadata in the Enterprise Data Inventory to reflect the public feedback received.

NSF has added Frequently Asked Questions to the Open Data at NSF webpage (http://www.nsf.gov/data/) to better direct individuals and organizations to resources and feedback mechanisms to improve our data usability. The FAQ also includes links to Data.gov's Help Desk (Open Data Stack Exchange) which is monitored continuously for customer feedback related to NSF's datasets and metadata quality.
Provides valid contact point information for all datasets

Data Publication Process Delivered Crawl details
Information that should not to be made public is documented with agency's OGC
See below Describe the agency's data publication process
NSF utilizes a regular process to review newly identified data sets prior to their planned release, to validate that there are no concerns with respect to privacy, confidentiality, security, contractual restrictions, or other factors. This process is similar to the agency approval process for the publication of agency data in Data.gov and incorporates best practices from the agency’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) program to ensure the presumption of openness is being applied to all agency data release decisions. When a potential restriction to release is identified, agency points of contact for Open Data will work with the Office of General Counsel and other subject matter experts as appropriate to review the concerns and, if required, document the determined barrier to release. Some potential characteristics of agency data that could prevent public release include privacy considerations (e.g., personally identifiable information); confidentiality matters (e.g., predecisional or deliberative material); contractual restrictions (e.g., contractor bidding information). Because of the nature of NSF’s mission, one common restriction for public release of data would likely be limitations in the full release of proposal-related data that may contain confidential, proprietary business information protected by FOIA Exemption 4.
