The Office of Management and Budget plans to release an open data policy Nov. 23 to supplement its federal digital strategy, which came out in May, FierceGovernmentIT reported Monday.

The policy will include plans to make a central repository for all live federal data and metadata, some of which will be obtained by crawling agency websites, according to the report.

The report came from a speech Federal Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel gave Thursday at the World Government Summit on Open Source in Washington.
