Sobre el proceso que se está viviendo en EEUU para adaptar su gobierno al concepto de "Open Government", para hacer al gobierno más trasnparente, participativo, colaborativo. Innovación en política.
When President Barack Obama took office, he launched an initiative to increase the openness of government by directing agencies to do three things:
The initial guidance and attention focused on the first, data transparency, but agencies also developed plans on how they would increase public participation and collaboration.
This report focuses on the public participation and collaboration elements of the president’s Open Government Initiative. It details the activities and programs underway in the 29 major agencies and provides case studies of the current and planned participation activities of four agencies: the Department of Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The authors found that agency plans offer a great deal of promise in terms of the range of activities and commitments underway and planned, especially in the use of electronic tools and techniques. The authors also found that there is much room for improvement in several areas. The report presents a series of recommendations to agencies on how they can achieve enhanced public participation and collaboration.
