current problems issues
FGDC Steering Committee too far removed

Little coordination or sharing of information

Duplication of effort

Data and information gaps are not being addressed

Recognize same problems exist at Federal, state and local levels

Business practices

Lack of comprehensive national strategy

Federal credibility

Lack of authority and accountability

Many governance pieces

FGDC still primarily Federal

Unclear roles and responsibilities

Private sector involvement in governance

Current Problems / Issues
factors to consider in a governance process
Factors to Consider In a Governance Process
  • National approach
  • Right level of decision-makers
  • Bias to successful active participants/players
  • Builds in accountability
  • Simple - to avoid confusion
  • Inclusive - Fed, state, local, private, academia
  • Bold step
  • Clearly defined roles & responsibilities
strawman governance models option 2 key elements
Strawman Governance Models Option 2 - Key Elements
  • Would establish an Autonomous National Mapping Organization with responsibility for national base mapping and related service provision and partnerships.
  • New organization would be financially self-supporting through sales of products and services, licenses for data and interagency contracts for specific essential federal data and services
  • Would establish a Governing Board that provides strategic directions and budgeting. Board would include senior federal officials, 1 or more elected official, and non-government officials
  • Base data programs could be limited to 1:24K scale and smaller or could extend to large scale including cadastral and land records/registration
  • FGDC would continue as a Federal Coordinating body for other geospatial data and programs
option 2

Consolidated National Base Mapping Program

centralized operations for Framework base data (compilation and update)

Map, Data, and Related Service Provision

Provides wide range of useful analogue and digital data products and online applications and services (portal approach)

External Partnerships and Programs

Management of external licenses, joint projects, re-seller relationships, etc.

State Governments

National Mapping Liaison

City & Municipal Govt’s

Tribal Governments

County Governments

Federal Agencies

Utilities

Regional Councils

Professional Associations

Non-Profit Organizations

Private Sector/Industry

Academia

Option 2

Governing Board

representation from Federal Agency and

non-governmental organizations

Congressional

Oversight Committee

OMB

National Mapping Organization

(new, autonomous Federal agency with self-supporting financial status)

The National Mapping Organization gets source information from these organizations (particularly larger scale data) and

incorporates it into products. Data are provided from the National Mapping Organization

strawman governance models option 3 key elements
Strawman Governance Models Option 3 - Key Elements
  • Would establish new entity through combination of existing and new organizations
  • Four Phased Option
  • Phase One – Establish a National Geospatial Coordinating Council thru non-statutory authority – role would be national policy applications, standards and implementation.
  • Phase Two – Strengthened FGDC federal leadership role through new Presidential Executive Order.
  • Phase Three – Uniform State Coordinating Councils that represent state, local and state/regional interests through Gubernatorial Executive Orders
  • Phase Four – New Legislation similar to that described in Strawman Option 1.

big ideas so far from co lead
Big Ideas so far - from co-lead
  • States, locals want a seat with a vote
  • Private sector wants to be involved
  • National not federal leadership
  • More accountability and Leadership needed
  • Need financial authority
    • From financial markets
    • From federal budgets
  • Model 2 is DOA
    • Self financing
    • Competetion with private sector
  • More OMB involvement

objectives for today s session
Objectives for today’s session
  • Establish a greater level of understanding regarding issues and options for Governance Models for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure
  • Solicit input and ideas on the NSDI governance process, structure and key elements
  • Gather information to feed into the development of recommendations
current governance model key elements
Current governance model - Key Elements
  • OMB Circular A-16 created FGDC as interagency coordinating body and to facilitate implementation of NSDI. FGDC organizationally is within USGS
  • A-16 provides guidance to Federal agencies for coordination of geographic information. Executive Order 12906 also provides NSDI guidance
  • Department of Interior Chairs FGDC, OMB is Vice-Chair
  • A-16 requires partnership programs with stakeholders for NSDI
  • Stakeholders are very important to but not members of FGDC

what are we governing
What are we governing?

Some thoughts…

  • Geospatial information (production, maintenance, distribution?)
  • Processes that develop and use geospatial information
  • The infrastructure at a national scale
  • Standards, policy, technology, and resources to acquire, process, store, distribute and improve utilization of geospatial information
challenges ahead
Challenges Ahead
  • Roadblocks between and among Federal Agencies and/or other levels of government
  • Political - GOS Board, other “governing bodies”
  • Communicating outside the geospatial community
  • Funding
  • “You’re not the boss of me.”
  • Defining the levels of governance - control, support, guide, facilitate, ratify or certify, facilitate policy development, etc.
discussion
Discussion
  • Three Strawmen Governance Models are shown to generate ideas and open discussion. Discussion should concentrate on:
    • Issues and options for Governance Models for the National Spatial Data Infrastructure
    • Input and ideas on the NSDI governance process, structure and key elements
    • Information to feed into the development of recommendations
  • Discussion is not limited to only Three Strawmen Options –other ideas, options, or combinations are encouraged
strawman governance models option 1 key elements
Strawman Governance Models Option 1 - Key Elements
  • Proposes new Legislation which would: establish and maintain geospatial preparedness through the NSDI as a national priority; require conformity with standards adopted through voluntary consensus processes; and establish a grant program to assist in implementing the NSDI and achieving geospatial preparedness.
  • Would establish a National Geospatial Coordinating Council (NGCC) through new legislation.
    • NGCC would be responsible for national NSDI policy, implementation,and interoperability issues.
    • NGCC Executive Director would be Appointed by President
    • NGCC Membership would include representatives of all sectors.
  • FGDC would be focused on Federal Coordination responsibilities of A-16.
  • Grant Program for NSDI implementation and adherence to standards and NSDI practices proposed for funding of $500M/year. A stable funding base for FGDC, NGCC and standards would be proposed.
next steps
Next Steps
  • Data Collection (in progress) – Oct. 04 to April 05
    • Literature Review
    • Research of existing models
    • Outreach focus groups, workshops and interviews
  • Synthesis and Analysis – Feb and April, 2005
    • Identify 2 - 4 models to consider
    • Identify criteria to apply
    • Analyze Models and implementation requirements
  • Feedback from Stakeholder Groups – March through May 2005
  • Report – June 2005
