Transparency - Participation - Collaboration

On December 8, 2009, The Office of Management and Budget issued the Open Government Directive (M-10-06) which described the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration as “the cornerstone of an open government.”

In keeping with these principles, our Open Government Plan details our approach for sharing our data more openly, engaging with the public more proactively and collaborating with all citizens. Our Open Government Plan is only of part of our approach to increase transparency and openness. We encourage you to explore other information on our website to learn more about what DoD is doing to address the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration.

We want to specifically hear from you on how our plan can be improved, and on what data, datasets and information you want to see from DoD. We also encourage you to think of innovative ways to use the data we have provided in our plan and on Data.gov and provide us feedback on these innovations. Also, feel free to send us your thoughts on open government through our contact page.
