White House updating opengov roadmap

Open government advocates should put on their thinking caps as the United States plans its third National Action Plan (NAP), writes Corinna Zarek of the Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The first U.S. NAP was published in 2011. The second, published in 2013, is still being implemented through the end of 2015. The third NAP will expand on existing initiatives and address new ways to improve government transparency, accountability and response in the next two years.

Zarek calls on the public to suggest “expanded commitments” related to topic addressed by first two plans, such as public participation, open data, records management or natural resource revenue transparency. New ideas are also encouraged.

Suggestions for the plan can be sent to [email protected]. Participants can also contribute ideas to a publicly available Hackpad that GSA is helping coordinate, Zarek said.
