Woodrow Wilson Intl Center Issues Recommendations for Citizen Engagement Opportunities

Federal employees discussed recommendations on how to utilize citizen engagement to address challenges the U.S. faces during a gathering at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Kelly Olson, acting director of the Technology Transformation Service’s innovation portfolio, wrote in a blog post published Monday on the General Services Administration website the “Strategic Recommendations for Advancing U.S. Federal Policies, Programs and Partnerships” report offers insights on networks, policies and resources devoted to public engagement.

Wilson Center noted the GSA and White House Office of Science and Technology Policy have supported the government’s efforts to advance citizen science and crowdsourcing strategies.

“The Wilson Center’s recommendations cover policy, law, collaboration among federal agencies, and public-private partnerships,” said Olson.

“They also call for continued support from both OSTP and GSA, where we are working to establish dedicated staffing and web development resources for CitizenScience.gov and all of its components.”
