The National Institute of Standards and Technology has a diverse intramural research program with equally diverse data acquisition methods, data file formats, and data sharing and dissemination methods.  With the creation of the Office of Data and Informatics five years ago, however, we have made substantial progress in improving practices in data management that embrace the entire data lifecycle and support the global FAIR* initiative.  We have implemented a new NIST-wide research data repository that hosts the majority of NIST’s public research data using Amazon Web Services as a platform.  We have also piloted the use of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for better metadata tagging of instrumental data and we have several hundred researchers using electronic laboratory notebooks.  NIST recently invested in a dedicated computer system to support machine learning and AI research, however, effective use of this system relies upon conscientious practices in data management.  NIST also participates in an interagency Subcommittee on Open Science, convened by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, that is discussing ways to improve access to US Government data assets.
