Assessment Summary

EDI: Commerce greatly improved the quality of its EDI this quarter with growth of over 7000%. The EDI is now more in line with what we expect for a data-heavy agency such as Commerce; however, the EDI is incomplete, as evidenced by the fact that the agency has over 40,000 datasets on data.gov. Commerce has not updated its schedule milestones since May 31, 2014, so the overall EDI score is yellow.

PDL: Commerce has 3,910 public datasets listed in its EDI and over 40,000 datasets on data.gov, but the PDL only contains 312. OMB understands the metadata challenges associated with geospacial data, which is the main reason for the discrepant counts, but the PDL needs to be updated to match the current version of the EDI. Commerce should follow the guidance provided at http://www.digitalgov.gov/resources/how-to-get-your-open-data-on-data-gov to ensure all of its public datasets are included in the PDL.

Public Engagement: Commerce has a transparent 2-way feedback mechanism through Ideascale, but the agency does not appear to be actively using it.

Use & Impact: BEST PRACTICE: Commerce provided excellent feedback on the value of open data and recommendations for improvement. This includes quantitative data on the ROI of open government data and thorough lists of recommendations for improvement, including recommendations to specific bureaus within the department for new data resources. OMB will reach out to Commerce to identify and share the agency's methods for identifying and surveying their top 5 data users.
