As promised on President Obama’s first full day in office, the White House has launched a process for soliciting public input and participation in the development of Open Government Directive. The public may participate in a short three-phase process:
UPDATE The Brainstorming site will stay active through June 19. For more information on the next phase of the process, and on how newly submitted ideas will be treated, see the White House Blog Post, Open Government Initiative: Phase II.
Voting will stay open through the holiday weekend, until 5pm Eastern Monday, July 6th.
Additionally, recommendations and communications for the open government directive that the administration has received over the last few months can be read at the open government inbox hosted by the Office of Science and Technology Policy features. It does not contain documents received during the transition, so previous submissions seem to require resubmission.
This process will be followed by a traditional interagency review and the internal crafting of recommendations. We have been assured that the public will have an opportunity to review and comment on the recommendations, and that all of the comments and other outputs will be public.
