On January 14, 2019, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act ("Evidence Act"), which includes the OPEN Government Data Act, was signed into law. The Evidence Act requires the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Government Information Services, and the General Services Administration to develop and maintain an online repository of tools, best practices, and schema standards to facilitate the adoption of open data practices across the Federal Government. When the new repository is launched, it will replace and retire Project Open Data. Check back here for updates.

Open Data – Data.gov

Responsibly unleash the power of data for the benefit of the American public and maximize the Nation’s return on its investment in data. Data is an asset to be leveraged and strengthen our democracy, promote government efficiencies, and improve citizens’ quality of life when it is made available, discoverable, and usable to the public – in a word, “open”.
