GSA Seeks Citizen Comments on Public Participation How-To

GSAThe White House has asked for public comment on a draft playbook for agencies developing or planning to run open government programs for better citizen engagement, Federal News Radio reported Wednesday.

Emily Kopp writes the exercise, which will run until Dec. 17, provides an avenue for people to help shape a framework meant to improve government transparency and public services.

“Some categories included in the plays include encouraging community development and outreach, empowering participants through public/private partnerships, using data to drive decisions, and designing for inclusiveness and accessibility,” Corinna Zarek, White House senior adviser for open government, and Justin Herman, SocialGov lead for the General Services Administration, wrote in a blog post Nov. 25.

GSA published the playbook draft on the Madison open source digital platform and will release a revised version in January for further refinement by agencies.

“This resource reflects the commitment of the government and civic partners to measurably improve participation programs, and is designed using the same inclusive principles that it champions,” Zarek and Herman said.
