Project Open Data

Project Open Data provides the implementation guide and associated resources for the Federal Executive Order on open data and data management, M-13-13 “Managing Information as an Asset,” including the standardized metadata schema required for all CFO Act agencies to publish the enterprise data inventories.

The Project Open Data Metadata Schema is a JSON-based implementation of the W3C DCAT vocabulary. This standard is currently implemented by multiple data catalog platforms as well as state and local governments.
