PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


Connecticut's Open Data initiative was launched in February of 2014 by Executive  Order No. 39 of Governor Dannel. P. Malloy.

The purpose of the order is to provide open access to data in its rawest form, before it has been aggregated and analyzed.

Analysts, academics, entrepreneurs and all members of the public will have the opportunity to use open data.  The online data portal gives users the opportunity to visualize data through graphs or charts and on maps when applicable.

The executive order instructs agency heads to make public data openly available while continuing to safeguard information that must be kept secure. 


THE EXECUTIVE ORDER ESTABLISHES:

The Connecticut Open Data Portal: https://data.ct.gov

The position of the Chief Data Officer, within the Office of Policy and Management

An Agency Data Officer within each State Agency covered by the Order
