All, A reminder that your action item for the next IWGDD meeting (1-3pm Thursday June 17) is to see if there is someone in your organization with direct experience in implementing DOIs who could participate in our next meeting. Questions we would like those individuals to consider are:

*   Why did your agency choose to implement DOIs? What benefits did the agency seek and are those benefits being realized?

*   What were the challenges and what are some best practices in implementing DOIs?

*   What would you do differently if you had it to do again?

Dear Colleagues, The FY12 OSTP/OMB Science and Technology Budget Priorities memo came out last night.  The memo provides guidance to agencies in formulating their FY12 investments and focuses on a small number of the Administration’s HIGHEST priorities.  Among these is the following: 

“Agencies, in cooperation with OSTP and OMB, should develop and sustain datasets to better document Federal science, technology, and innovation investments and to make these data open to the public in accessible, useful formats. Agencies should develop and regularly update their data sharing policies for research performers and create incentives for sharing data publicly in interoperable formats to ensure maximum value, consistent with privacy, national security, and confidentiality concerns.”

While I wasn’t successful in getting the IWGDD named in the text (OMB feels some co-ownership and the compromise was to cite OSTP and OMB generically), it is VERY rewarding to have data access and preservation highlighted as an Administration investment priority and have our recommendations directly endorsed.  This creates a great opening for us to further pursue our goals.  Keep up the terrific work!!

Chris

  • iGov: How Geeks are opening up government for the Web, January/february 2009 The Atlantic
  • Data for the masses: Initiatives for digital research infrastrucuture should focus more on making standardized data openly available, and less on developing new portals, Nature, Volume 457, Issue No. 7226, January 8, 2009

Contributions by Brand Niemann:

  • 1. The Federal Data Reference Model (DRM)
    • The Federal Data Reference Model (DRM) (PDF) describes, at an aggregate level, the data and information supporting government program and business line operations. This model enables agencies to describe the types of interaction and exchanges occurring between the Federal government and citizens.
      http://www.whitehouse.gov/OMB/egov/a-5-drm.html (not working) DRM_2_0_Final.pdf
    • The DRM categorizes government information into greater levels of detail. It also establishes a classification for Federal data and identifies duplicative data resources. A common data model will streamline information exchange processes within the Federal government and between government and external stakeholders.
    • The DRM provides a standard means by which data may be described, categorized, and shared. These are reflected within each of the DRM’s three standardization areas:
    • Data Description: Provides a means to uniformly describe data, thereby supporting its discovery and sharing 
      Data Context: Facilitates discovery of data through an approach to the categorization of data according to taxonomies; additionally, enables the definition of authoritative data assets within a community of interest (COI) 
      Data Sharing: Supports the access and exchange of data where access consists of ad-hoc requests (such as a query of a data asset), and exchange consists of fixed, re-occurring transactions between parties 
      The FEA PMO is collaborating with members of the interagency DRM Working Group, chartered by the Architecture and Infrastructure Committee (AIC) of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) Council, to implement and maintain this reference model.
  • 2. Online Book: A New Enterprise Information Architecture and Data Management Strategy for the U.S. EPA and the Federal Government (See Under Brand Niemann).
  • 3. January 8, 2009, A Target Enterprise Architecture for the U.S. EPA Using SOA, Web 2.0, and Cloud Computing
    Also includes Data Architecture and Management.
  • 4. February 6, 2007, SICoP Special Conference Building DRM 3.0 and Web 3.0 for Managing Context Across Multiple Documents and Organizations
    • Best Practice: The NASA Global Change Master Directory describes how several Petabytes of government information is successfully described, identified by topics, and accessed today. Lola Olsen has a project that successfully uses topics and data descriptions which can be our template – i.e. the government has the competence to do it right and it has been doing so for nearly two decades.
  • 4. February 5, 2008, SICoP Special Conference: Building Semantic Interoperability Solutions for Information Sharing and Integration
  • 5. February 17, 2009, From E-Gov to Connected Governance: The Role of Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 Semantic Technologies
  • Call to action to ask government agencies and system integrators present to do pilot projects that integrate their capabilities into next generation environments for collaborative work, information sharing, and knowledge management, and connected governance.
