A-16 NGDA Portfolio Management - Implementation


The concept portfolio management of Federal geospatial data assets was introduced in 2010 when the OMB’s Circular A-16 Supplemental Guidance was issued. To implement the guidance an interagency team developed the NGDA Management Plan that was approved by the FGDC Steering Committee in 2014.

Since that time the FGDC agencies have collaborated build the framework and processes for managing National Geospatial Data Assets (NGDAs) as a single Federal Geospatial Portfolio in accordance with OMB policy and Administration direction.
