Open Government Directive

When President Obama entered into office he issued a memorandum calling for an unprecedented level of openness in government, which launched the Open Government Initiative.  In December 2009, the Director of the OMB issued the Open Government Directive, which set forth detailed requirements focused on implementing the president’s vision.  The president required the OMB to issue a directive to federal departments and agencies to take certain steps to implement the underlying principles of transparency, participation and collaboration discussed in the president’s memorandum.
