HHS, DOT start open government plan refresh

From Fierce Government:

Two federal agencies seek feedback to inform updates to their open government plans as the 2 year deadline for refreshing them comes due this spring.


The required update isn't the only thing forcing agencies to revisit plans, said Amy Bennett, assistant director of OpenTheGovernment.org. The White House's National Action Plan — crafted in September 2011 as part of the Open Government Partnership — lists improving implementation of agency open government plans as a goal. Bennett said this element of accountability in the NAP is refreshing, as White House attention to agencies' open government commitments "was noticeably absent over the last two years."
