Evaluating Agencies’ Open Government Progress

OpenTheGovernment.org posted a response to public feedback on our proposed framework to evaluate openness at federal agencies.


The framework is divided into three sections: 1) availability of information identified by the nongovernment openness community as critical for accountability; 2) progress in implementation of the agency’s open government plan; and 3) the accessibility of information on the agency’s website. OpenTheGovernment.org will be working with our volunteers, a group of individuals with experience working with agencies and evaluating information policies from nonprofit groups, academia, and other organizations that serve the public interest to complete sections 1 and 2. The Section 3 evaluation will be completed by the Armstrong Institute for Interactive Media Studies at Miami University of Ohio; we expect results of this section of the evaluation before the end of the year
