White House Seeking Open Govt. Ideas

U.S. CTO Aneesh Chopra

President Barack Obama made transparency and open government a main focus during his election campaign in 2008. The administration is now seeking ideas from the public on how to make government more transparent.

Aneesh Chopra, the U.S. chief technology officer, asked for ideas in a blog post Monday on the official White House website. The administration will take suggestions over the next month.

Chopra asked readers to submit ideas on making regulations.gov more useful to the government’s rulemaking process and federal websites can be made more useful to the public.

“Your ideas will be carefully considered as we produce our national plan and continue to engage with you over the next month in future posts on this blog,” Chopra wrote.

Last month the White House announced the creation of the Open Government Partnership, seeking international cooperation in making governments more transparent.
