In his May 23rd, 2012 Presidential Memorandum, President Obama directed executive departments and agencies to:
- Implement the requirements of the Digital Government Strategy, and
- Create a page at
www.[agency].gov/digitalstrategyto publicly report progress of this implementation.
Consistent with Milestone Actions #2.1 (open data) and #7.1 (mobile optimization), agencies will post candidate data sets and services to open up over the next several months on these pages.
Ensuing OMB guidance directed agencies to publish this progress information in HTML, XML, and JSON at consistent urls (
/digitalstrategy.json, respectively) and following a granular and publicly available schema. This allows the public to dynamically track progress across government at a granular level– easily and sustainably.
As more agencies publish their HTML, XML, and JSON progress reports, this page will be updated with their links. However, the public is encouraged to use the opensourced schema and code to assemble tracking mechanisms of their own in order to participate in and drive innovation and modernization across the entire federal government.
