Centralize the encryption & data protection laws by location

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 »

Strategic Intent

Protecting the digital borders

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.

Foreign Per Diem Rate Monthly Data in XML

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.

Change "join the dialogue" to "join the conversation"

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 »

Government Tree

Building a UI of the government from the top down, which is multimedia (Adobe Flash) so the public can visually see how all the agencies connect and who they report too? From the top down so users can view the highest of government, down to the city they live in. All data could be connected to the agency it pertains to, and its representatives, with picture and years in office.

Example: A Family Tree

Agency Next Steps

Overcome resistance to change

I have spent 20+ years executing enterprise applications, systems and acrhitectures with leaders like IBM, SAP, and Informatica.

ADA's Anti Denturists Policy - Data Not Listed With Fed Agencies

Denturist data is not available through federal agencies. The American Dental Association Policy Handbook clearly outlines the act to suppress the denturist profession and intimidate dental suppliers of dental material to denturists. The American Dental Association and American Medical Association spend big dollars suppressing competition by lobbying against legislation to regulate Alternative Healthcare Professions. ...more »

allow searching by data extent

It would be very useful to allow data searching by extent for geodata sets. For example, I am only interested in data that are available nationally. Imagine some people would be interested in searching by state or even county.
