To mark the anniversary of the release of the Open Government Partnership US National Action Plan, OpenTheGovernment.org and a team of organizations released a progress report on the steps the Administration’s implementation of the report.
On September 20, 2011, the Administration released its Open Government Partnership US National Action Plan. The plan included a variety of commitments aimed to further public participation, government transparency, and improve citizen access to government information. The Administration does not intend to have enacted this plan in its entirety until January 2013 – a date that will put the US in sync with the majority of countries participating in the Open Government Partnership.
