Many of you probably saw the Open Government Directive Memo that was published earlier this month. If you didn't, you can read it here.
This memo has speedy schedule for agencies to develop, plan and comply with differect requirements to make the Federal Government more open and transparent.
Realizing that almost every agency would need to develop a plan in short order, I worked with some of my collegues to generate an Open Government Directive Plan Template which is posted here.
I have also created a project file to help manage the milestones and deadlines. This project file should be available soon. Some of the key milestones that are due in the next 45 to 120 days are:
• Publish 3 high-value data sets
• Open Government Webpage
• Create Open Government Plan
• Identify one new Flagship Initiative to increase transparency, participation, or collaboration
There are over 70 different activities, deliverables, and milestones due in the next 120 days.
Trying to draw on my previous 17 years in government to write the 33 page Open Government Directive Plan Template, I hope we were able to provide this community with a good jump start on firming up thier Open Government Plans.
Please take a look and give me/us feedback, so we can continue to improve the template for all.
