Quick links: Federal agency open government plans

 
 

Put down the best-seller and cancel the rest of Spring Break, the White House announced today federal agencies have released their open government plans. The plans are part of the Administration’s Open Government Initiative and should make for great beach reading.

From the White House:

The Plans will make operations and data more transparent, and expand opportunities for citizen participation, collaboration, and oversight. These steps will strengthen our democracy and promote accountability, efficiency and effectiveness across the government.

Here are direct links to all plans (those not linked are not available or not easily visible, so let me know if you find them):
