Open Government Directive: Public Comment Opportunities

January 6, 2010

On Tuesday, December 8, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget issued the Open Government Directive, which we discussed in an earlier blog post.   The Directive results from the executive memorandum on Transparency and Open Government that President Obama issued as his first executive action on January 21, 2009.

There are very short deadlines under the Directive, one of which is to put up an Open Government Dashboard to measure progress and impact within 60 days, which would be February 6, 2010.  As part of that effort, the White House Open Government Initiative is requesting comments on the Dashboard , including as to the metrics by which to measure success.

In addition, the Open Government Directive instructs all federal agencies to make available high-value data that promote national priorities and improve the lives of everyday Americans through Data.gov.  The Open Government Initiative is also asking for comments on shaping that open government platformAs part of the Data.gov Dialogue, people can download the draft plans, submit a new idea, or comment on someone else’s.
