Federal Agencies Release "Open Government Plans"Breaking News
On April 7, federal agencies released “Open Government Plans” detailing how they will make their operations and data more transparent and expand opportunities for citizen participation, collaboration and oversight. In addition, each agency identified at least one “flagship initiative” – a signature open government innovation in the agency. The plans were mandated by President Obama’s Open Government Directive issued in December 2009.
The Directive also called on the White House’s Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Officer to create an Open Government Dashboard to assess the state of open government in the Executive Branch. The first version of the Dashboard, issued in conjunction with the plans, tracks agency progress on the deliverables set out in the Directive and links to each agency’s Open Government Webpage.
