PDBMI (Performance-Based Data Management Inititative)

Definition: The Performance-Based Data Management Initiative was a pilot program to enable states to compile data normally submitted to the U.S. Department of Education into a standard format for electronic submission. It later became known as the EDEN.

What This Means: PBDMI was important because it represented the desires of the state education agencies to provide data electronically from their existing systems, rather than filling in paper documents or online data entry screens. The goal was to include all Federal programmatic data that normally came from SEA administrative records systems. As more and more states became interested in participating in the pilot, USED moved toward actual implementation of the project as EDEN and later EDFacts.
