Corinna Zarek: White House Seeks New Ideas for Third Open Government Action Plan

WhiteHouseThe White House is seeking public input for the third open government national action plan before its publication in late 2015.

Corinna Zarek, senior adviser for open government to the U.S. chief technology officer in the Office of Science and Technology Policy, wrote in a blog post published Thursday that the government intends to work with other countries to implement the plan over the next two years.

The public may send contributions for the open government partnership to the OSTP via opengov@ostp.gov, Twitter account @OpenGov or the Hackpad collaboration platform, Zarek said.

OSTP wants suggestions that tackle public participation, open data, records management, natural resource revenue transparency, the Freedom of Information Act and open programs.

The office released the first and second national action plans in 2011 and 2013.
