The Data.gov CONOPS provides a great deal of information regarding the governance and advisory support made available by “POCs” and “Data Stewards” and other roles engaged in populating and supporting data on the site. The CONOPS also describes how Personally-Identifiable Information (PII) is protected, both for submitters and those engaged in the governance process. As well, some existing community forums are referenced... more »
UFO information, especially 1947 Roswell
To establish an open and inclusive COTS & Open Source self vetting "lab" where innovators of the market can engage is exploring the realm of the possible with prospective govt programs before they go to RFP. This would allow PMs and users better articulate the capabilities of the market in a collaborative forum and virtual lab. The "evidence" would come from a network of non-profits whose combined labs would form the... more »

(paperless) Any entity that is payrolled or utilizes taxpayer dollars: information on all expendatures, down to the "inth". Set up in a format similar to a P&L or MRO- filters allowing search & drilldown. With appropriate email Q&A contact and escalated contact.

Demonstrate technical examples which show how to integrate legacy systems (most common in state and local government agencies) into the federal data aggregation system, to speed adoption. Many state and local agencies rely on disparate technologies for collecting and reporting data. Over the years, proprietary and deprecated systems have become the norm in some agencies as a result of IT or procurement policy. There... more »
All military retirees are veterans but not all veterans are retirees. There is a need for statistical information on those who make the military their career, in addition to the data on veterans.
Nat Torkington recently posted Truly Open Data at http://radar.oreilly.com/2010/03/truly-open-data.html, in which he argues for an "open source approach" to data, considering lessons learned from the successful open source software community.
I won't try to reproduce his post, but I recommend reading it, and I hope it will spur some more specific ideas for Data.gov.
Create a space not just for improving this site, but for supplying suggestions to different agencies for improvements. For example: I just read about the revised $100 bill to combat the superbill. However, this is a technology cat & mouse game with another vary sophisticated organization. One improvement that might be more difficult to overcome is to insert a field programmable RFID chip into each bill. The chip... more »
Create a new data source which contains the laws broken down by country / state / province which outline the rules for exporting / importing encryption and which include the rules for data locality. For example, some countries require companies who conduct business of a certain $$ amount in their country to locate that sensitive data in their country physically and not in another country. There are likely other examples.... more »
ISEN.org site pending launch.
We need to have all of the IT leaders in the country trained and cognizant of the information security challenges that face our businesses, our intellectual property and our infrastucture. As technology continues to evolve over the coming months and years, portions of the IT infrastructure are falling behind. Let's create a strategic training program and bundle a toolset to make infosec an issue that gets the attention... more »
We currently manually download the Foreign Per Diem rates posted in excel on this website each month: http://aoprals.state.gov/content.asp?content_id=233&menu_id=89
We import this data into our local travel expense database so we have to keep it up-to-date. If this data was posted in XML format, we believe we can automate the download/upload process that we're doing manually.
It would be helpful to see the date that an idea or comment is posted here.
I applaud the Data.gov "powers that be" for enabling conversations ranging from strategy to technology by implementing this Ideascale-based site. I believe, however, that the site is mis-named. As the great author and consultant Peter Block has said, communities are about *conversations*. This is not mere semantics; participatory conversations amongst concerned stakeholders are inherently different than "dialogues,"... more »
