Under the terms of the Open Government Directive (OGD), the Obama Administration encouraged agencies to view their open government plans as "living documents" that should be regularly revisited, and required agencies to update the plans every two years. Accordingly, on April 9, the White House put up a blog post celebrating the release of open government plans 2.0. The celebration was a bit premature, though, given that several agencies hadn't yet actually posted their plans for the public, and one major agency – the Department of Labor – has not posted a single update since its Version 1 of the plan was released on April 7, 2010.
The Obama Administration committed to Support and Improve Agency Implementation of Open Government Plans and to monitor agency implementation of the plans as part of the US National Action Plan. We hope they will remind Labor to get back with the open government program soon.
