Federal Agencies to Receive Feedback From Public on Government Data Usage

DataGraphicA proposed update to the HealthData.gov website and mandate in the administration’s Open Data Policy show plans for federal agencies to gather feedback from developers and users of publicly released data, Nextgov reported Monday.

Joseph Marks writes the Open Data Policy requires agencies to ask data consumers for any needed information and their preferred formats, while HealthData.gov is seeking information on what health and human services data is used for.

According to the report, the Department of Health and Human Services has issued a notice on a sole-source contract with eGlobalTech for the website upgrades, including tools to indicate how data sets are used and to rate their quality and utility.

The government data source Data.gov now lists web and mobile applications that use the free government data.
