Strategic Plan Generator
To assist agencies with preparation of their required DCOI Strategic Plans, a conversion tool for transferring text into a compatible, machine-readable JSON file is provided below. Agencies' final DCOI Strategic Plans then must be published at
agency.gov/digitalstrategy/datacenteroptimizationstrategicplan.json according to the following deadlines:
|Fiscal Year||due on or before|
|2016||September 30, 2016|
|2017||April 14, 2017|
|2018||April 13, 2018|
|2019||February 15, 2019|
|2020||February 14, 2020|
Please enter the relevant data into each fields below. Data can be entered manually or automatically uploaded by clicking the ‘Load my own data’ button on the screen.
Once the ‘Load my own data’ button is clicked, a dialogue box will appear prompting you to enter your data in a JSON format. Once entered, click the ‘Load data’ button at the bottom of the screen.
Please Note: Some fields will only accept numerical data. In the event that the data does not match the parameters for a specific field, an error statement will appear describing the type of data to be entered to correct the error.
After filling in the data, either manually or by an upload, click the submit button at the very bottom. The tool will produce the entered data in a JSON format in a box at the very end. Copy this output into a text file and save it in a JSON format.
Please note that clicking "Generate" does not mean that the output is automatically submitted to OMB. The output must be posted on agencies'
[agency].gov/digitalstrategy/ website. OMB will access these files using the links listed in the Agency Strategic Plan Locations page of this site.
NOTE that the DCOI also requires that agencies post data center-related milestones to their FITARAmilestones.json files describing steps the agency will take to achieve the goals of the DCOI. Guidance surrounding the DCOI milestones is located at management.cio.gov/schema. This tool does not address the DCOI milestones requirement of the DCOI.
