White House Announces Arrival of Open Government Directive

Yesterday at 11:00 am Eastern, federal CTO Aneesh Chopra and federal CIO Vivek Kundra, held a live web chat with the public to announce the arrival of the open government directive, as well as answer any questions. The directive reflects Obama’s key priorities and is focused on achieving results. The goal has been to move from a secretive, closed government to an open and transparent government in which the public can access and offer input. According to the recently announced directive, after 120 days, each agency will have an open government plan. Additionally, each agency will be monitored to see how they are complying and what they are doing, for example with data quality. Then these updates of each agency will be posted online. The 11-page directive has been posted to whitehouse.gov if you are interested in learning more.
