Help Choose the Next Round of CDI Projects - FY20 Statements are In!

Release Date:

Phase 1 of the FY20 Community for Data Integration Request for Proposals asks for community members to ask questions and make suggestions to the project teams.

The USGS data community of practice, CDI, has received 24 statements of interest in this year's Request for Proposals.

The FY20 RFP themes are related to building elements of an Integrated Predictive Science Capacity for the USGS, as outlined in the USGS Director's Science Planning Strategy. This includes

  • Integration of USGS data into a comprehensive data lake
  • Development, integration, and application of a capability that incorporates data, interpretations, and knowledge that spans discipline boundaries, geographies, and sectors
  • Actionable intelligence that can be used via dashboards and applications to enhance situational awareness, provide new operational capabilities, and inform decision making
  • Tools and methods for promotion of smart and actionable data supporting wildland fire and water predictions
  • Production of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data and tools
  • Reusing or repurposing modular tools such as thos developed by previous CDI projects

The CDI invites you to view and comment on these statements of interest from October 15 - November 8, 2019.

A Lightning Presentation Session on October 23 give all project teams a chance to pitch their idea before community voting starts on October 25, 2019.

See more information about the CDI Statements of Interest on the CDI wiki.
