U.S. Chief Information Officer Tony Scott has announced a new government website that provides access to about 50 open source projects from more than 10 federal agencies.

Scott wrote in a blog post published Thursday that opens access to code of various government digital platforms such as,,, We the People and the White House Facebook bot.

He added the administration also seeks to provide agencies tools and industry practices necessary to implement the Federal Source Code Policy through the site.

The Federal Source Code Policy is designed to increase public access to the federal government’s custom software and help agencies avoid duplicate software procurement.

“It’s a step we took to enable the brightest minds inside and outside of government to work together to ensure that federal code is reliable and effective,” Scott said.
