I'm not sure why schools in Africa should be designed in any different way than buildings for housing people for other purposes elsewhere. There might be constraints to do with cost, availability of skilled labour, and building materials available, but such constraints apply everywhere. Other deciding factors might include risk of earthquake, and likely ...

Great questions- and ones that we try to answer as clearly as possible. We've got a slew of links on the submission page including FAQs- but how would you want the information presented so that it's easiest to access? Once data is submitted to the DDL via the webpage(yes we are looking at easier submission methods) the data goes through a clearance process ...

From the question here it looks as though the DDL has a form for data submission on their website: https://www.usaid.gov/data/DDLsubmissions

Thank you for the inquiry. The DDL is USAID's Development Data Library located at www.usaid.gov/data. We do collect basic web traffic statistics and will start looking into this with our CIO's office to kick off the process of posting download statistics on a regular basis. As of November 30, 2015, these stats are now posted here.

We have requested that a machine-readable (CSV) version of the Standardized Program Structure and Definitions be posted to this website. Will circle back when we have confirmation of posting.

Our apologies for the delay. We are updating our settings here and will strive to respond within 48 hours to future inquiries. Per Project Open Data, the individual metadata fields correspond to the specific "data asset" (or dataset) which you are describing. A single USAID award could generate data corresponding to every single program code. Therefore ...

USAID does not currently have a publicly available API for AIDtracker Plus. However, we are looking into specifications and requirements for a comprehensive data collection and reporting system that would have similar capabilities to AIDtracker Plus. Please see references in the second Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) (pages 12 and 54) ...

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Open Data Policy (M-13-13) states that to make data accessible to everyone, “formats should be non-proprietary, publicly available, and no restrictions should be placed upon their use.” As the “CSV” format is non-proprietary and usable in most spreadsheet and statistical software packages, it meets this criterion ...

The Development Data Library (DDL) is the Agency’s repository of USAID-funded, machine readable data created or collected by the Agency and its implementing partners. Generally speaking, if a dataset was funded by USAID, the dataset must also reside within the DDL. USAID will be upgrading the DDL significantly in 2016, and the DDL is intended to be a long-...

The most comprehensive dataset of USAID assistance can be found at foreignassistance.gov. Specifically, by going to http://beta.foreignassistance.gov/agencies/USAID you can download all of the Agency's transactions currently available. I have been informed that the data is only complete for the last three years and anything past three years is partial as the ...

Current USAID regulations and policies require that all USAID funded reports be submitted to the Development Experience Clearinghouse at the end of the project. USAID is currently finalizing a Public Access Plan for federally funded research that will outline guidance for ensuring public access of articles resulting from USAID-funding. Page 10 of USAID's ...

Technically speaking, metadata is submitted to the Development Data Library (DDL). Data may reside on other platforms and the DDL will point to wherever the data is using the downloadURL (or accessURL where appropriate). The uploading of data happens after the metadata is submitted. This may change as the platform evolves, but is the current state is a ...

We recognize that partners work with beneficiary data, but the terms of partner awards with USAID state that partners "must ensure that any Dataset submitted to the DDL does not contain any proprietary or personally identifiable information, such as social security numbers, home addresses, and dates of birth. Such information must be removed prior to ...


2

Per Project Open Data, data should be "complete" and published "with the finest possible level of granularity that is practicable and permitted by law and other requirements. Derived or aggregate open data should also be published but must reference the primary data." Please see our FAQ#8 for a discussion of aggregate data.

USAID is in the process of finalizing its geospatial data standards, which we expect to make available in 2017. As stated in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), datasets must be submitted to the DDL "in a machine-readable, non-proprietary format." As a matter of practice, the DDL will accept proprietary formats as long as the submitter also provides a ...

foreign assistance has it as a spreadsheet you can download, then convert to an open data format: http://www.foreignassistance.gov/web/Agency_USAID.aspx?budTab=tab_Bud_Impl

The Foreign Assistance Dashboard (FAD) has downloadable financial information from several U.S. Government agencies. There are several tools available from Economic Analysis and Data Services (EADS) on the usaid.gov website.

Hello Charles and thank you for your question. Not all datasets on USAID's Development Data Library (DDL) [https://data.usaid.gov/] are publicly available for download. Some are designated as private, intended for internal USAID use. Please email dataservices@usaid.gov to request access to specific non-public datasets on the DDL and the team will begin ...

This sounds like it may require a bit of in-depth discussion. As CSK notes, talking about this with the AOR/COR for your award would be helpful, but a conversation with the USAID Data Services Team would also help to clarify your question and suggest a path forward. We do ask that all USAID funded data be registered in the Development Data Library, but it ...

Thank you for your question. 2 CFR 200.315 is a clause in the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, And Audit Requirements For Federal Awards, which apply to grants and cooperative agreements, together referred to as assistance awards. The agreement with our partner (Socrata) to manage the DDL is a contract, subject to the Federal ...

You can find all of USAID’s Congressional Budget Justifications, which include a detailed breakdown by office, on the USAID website. At this moment, the Development Data Library doesn’t archive the proposed financials of the agency directly on the platform, but you can see a selection of those data on foreignassistance.gov. Hope this helps!

Unless the data about the project is made publicly available through a repository and/or any other means or format, you will have to officially request for it from any of the parties involved. Depending on their authority, level of access and/or any other provisions (rules, regulations, etc.) they may have relating to the said project, your request may be ...

Draft geospatial standards are now posted for comment / feedback at www.usaid.gov/data.

Documents for USAID are stored in the Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC).

The data can be found here -: https://www.datazar.com/project/pa51cbb1f-68ab-4786-b6c8-571f23849bcf P.S - I work for datazar, an open data library, where people can discover, work with and share data.
