New Report for Open Government Directive

I received this message from Joe Goldman (VP of Citizen Engagement at AmericaSpeaks) today…

This will be up on our web site soon, but wanted to share with you a new report we recently completed. (Download the report here.)

Nineteen senior leaders from 13 federal agencies and departments came together on May 12, 2009, at the headquarters of the Transportation Security Administration to offer ideas to the Open Government Directive. Participants in the three-hour discussion shared their hopes and concerns for the directive, discussed the most important things that the directive should accomplish, and what will be needed for the directive to be successfully implemented. Beth Noveck, the director of the White House task force responsible for creating the directive, participated in the discussions and responded to participant questions and ideas.

The May 12 meeting follows an earlier working session in late March that convened 34 managers and staff from 23 different agencies to develop recommendations for the Open Government Directive. The report from the earlier session may be read at www.americaspeaks.org/champions. Both meetings were facilitated by AmericaSpeaks, Demos, Everyday Democracy, and Harvard University’s Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation.
