ISE's Participation in the Open Government Initiative

My Administration is creating an unprecedented level of openness in government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

The Memorandum sought to empower the American public through greater openness and new technologies allowing them to influence the decisions that affect their lives.

Since then, the White House has released the Digital Government Strategy and President Obama signed Executive Order: Making Open and Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information. You can follow our work in support of these directives:
