White House Set to Release Open Government Plan Today
Last night, the White House sent word announcing some exciting news - the Open Government Plan (based on the Open Government Directive) will be released today, at 11am EST. This helps fulfill a promise that the Obama administration made on day one when the President took office. We're excited that agencies will be able to dive into the new year with a concrete set of guidelines to make them more transparent, participatory, and collaborative.
Though we wish that there had been more notice of this event, the announcement will be available online - they're webstreaming the event - and are providing a forum for public questions afterwards.
We hope that you can take some time out of your day to watch the announcement and tell the administration what you think of it.
