Coordinator's Portal

Resources for San Francisco's Data Coordinators


This portal is designed to help you, as a City Data Coordinator, orient to your role and make sure you have the resources you need to execute on your responsibilities.

The data coordinator is responsible for:

  • Developing a catalog of datasets that can be made public
  • Monitoring and responding to comments on public datasets
  • Monitoring and tracking the rollout of public datasets on the open data portal
  • Ensuring that processes are followed to exclude private, confidential or proprietary data

In addition to the responsibilities, data coordinators will be supported in the work through:

  • Training and workshop opportunities to develop professionally around data management and best practices
  • Tools for tracking and monitoring the publishing of datasets by your department
  • Access to a network of your peer data coordinators at other departments
  • Services for helping to manage the automation of publishing datasets as needed
