This GitHub issue is collecting feedback to inform the development of a data standards repository on Based on Action 20 of the Federal Data Strategy, the repository will include not only data standards themselves, but also “information about the different types of existing standards of all types.” We need your input on what kind of complementary content would be of value.

Action 20 suggests this information should include:

  • policies related to using voluntary consensus standards
  • information about standards-developing organizations and communities of practices inside and outside of government
  • a catalog of data standards already in use by the Federal Government

In addition to this, we have considered the following:

  • process for determining an appropriate standard to use for a given use case
  • process for aligning on a standard within an organization / across organizations
  • information on how to work with standards bodies

Please comment below with any reactions to the above or recommendations for other types of content to include in this data standards repository. If you prefer, you can send any comments to

If you have feedback on what metadata you would like to see displayed for data standards listed in this repository, please provide your comments in response to #158.
