Feds Wants Feedback on Open Gov Plan

The federal government is developing an open government country action plan along with other nations as part of the Open Government Partnership launching next month and is asking for citizen input.

According to a blog post by Federal CTO Aneesh Chopra and Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Cass Sunstein, the government would like input on improving public services and increasing public integrity.

Of importance:

  • How can, one of the primary mechanisms for government transparency and public participation, be made more useful to the public rulemaking process?
  • OMB is beginning the process of reviewing and potentially updating its Federal Web Policy.  What policy updates should be included in this revision to make Federal websites more user-friendly and pertinent to the needs of the public?
  • How can we build on the success of Data.Gov and encourage the use of democratized data to build new consumer-oriented products and services?

Comments can be sent to, some of which will be posted in an online summary and considered during development of the plan.
