Open Government

President Obama issued a memorandum directing the Chief Technology Officer, in coordination with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Administrator of General Services to produce a Open Government Directive.

The major goals of this initiative are:

  • Government should be transparent
  • Government should be participatory
  • Government should be collaborative

Although the major focus will be information transparency we hope that at same point the work group do also point out the need for process transparency, which will lead to the discussion of software transparency.

Let’s hope that the idea of Open Government does flourish and be an example to other countries.

P.S.
During the process of writing the above note, I went on searching to find the link to the Chief Technology Officer site. I could not find one. However, I found out that there will be a Chief Information Officer. I could not find a site for the US CIO, but found out the site for the Council of US CIOs.
