Activity

Status

Completed

3.  Create and Institutionalize a Culture of Open Government:   To create an unprecedented and sustained level of openness and accountability in every agency, senior leaders should strive to incorporate the values of transparency, participation, and collaboration into the ongoing work of their agency.  Achieving a more open government will require the various professional disciplines within the Government � such as policy, legal, procurement, finance, and technology operations � to work together to define and to develop open government solutions.  Integration of various disciplines facilitates organization-wide and lasting change in the way that Government works.

Activity

Status

Develop and publish on the Open Government Webpage an Open Government Plan that will describe how Treasury will improve transparency and integrate public participation and collaboration into its activities.  Gather input from the public.

Completed
Treasury�s Open Government Plan is available here.
