3 2012 GAO Actions Update Actions in response to November 2102 GAO Report (GAO-13-94) GAO is monitoring on-going actions Action 1) Steering Committee to: Develop a plan with timeframe to facilitate the implementation of OMB’s portfolio management guidance National Geospatial Asset Management (NGDA) Management Plan – GAO monitoring implementation Action 2) Steering Committee to: Develop and implement guidance and timeframe for identifying planned geospatial investments using the Geospatial Platform (Marketplace) This action is completed. Action 3) Steering Committee to: Create and update a strategic plan with timeframe and implement the plan within the established time frame. NSDI Strategic Plan – GAO monitoring implementation 3

4 GAO Engagement Background GAO engagement on Geospatial data (311299) - letter received January 6, 2014 Issues under review/Objective(s)/Key questions(s): 1. Determine the implementation status of prior recommendations  Engagement Describe the types of geospatial data that selected federal agencies and States are acquiring.  Looking for use cases and maps to show the pervasive use across the government 3. Determine the extent to which selected federal agencies and States invest in potentially duplicative geospatial data  Focused primarily on address and imagery data  GAO met with States - MD, OH, SC, MT, WA

5 2014 GAO Engagement – Recent Actions GAO posed follow-up questions to: NOAA, Census, USGS on data theme activities GSA on Data.gov/GeoPlatform.gov relationship FGDC OS/DOI met with GAO on 9/15/14 - questions on: The status and reporting of the National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) Management Plan’s actions GeoPlatform.gov operations Likely the last meeting - minor clarifying questions needed for their report may potentially be asked Continue to look for “evidence” of implementation of 2012 actions 5

6 2014 GAO Engagement – Next Steps GAO is currently drafting their report Projected timeline of actions November GAO will provide their statement-of-facts to the interviewed agencies for their review and response December GAO provides draft report to interviewed agencies with a 30-day comment and response period January 2015 – Responses to draft report due to GAO February 2015 – GAO anticipates releasing their final report 6

7 National Boundaries Group (NBG) In July 2014, the Steering Committee approved the NBG as a working group of the FGDC Established in 2011 Supports activities of several National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) data themes Purpose: to ensure federal boundary sources are nationally consistent, accurate, and integrated. Members: federal agencies, which as part of their mission, collect or finance the collection of boundary data, and those federal agencies that are legislatively mandated to directly apply these data in support of their missions Non-federal representation may be added with consensus from members Co-chaired by U.S. Census and U.S. Geological Survey 7

8 Spatial Data Transfer Standard (SDTS) Conceptual model and detailed specifications for the content, structure, and format for exchange of spatial data (7 parts/profiles) Dates back to the 1990s Public comment period resulted in 1 comment on its past use with no response to FGDC follow-up SDTS Parts 1-7 have been voted to be withdrawn by the FGDC Information will remain on the FGDC website for reference only 8

9 National Geospatial Data Asset Management Plan (NGDAMP) National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) portfolio management process optimizing investments in Federal geospatial assets For effective sharing, collaboration, and use of core geospatial data across Federal agencies and with partners / stakeholders Support efficient and effective decisionmaking Approved by the FGDC March year implementation plan Good progress is being made by the agencies 9
