Government Offices Represented
- General Services Administration (GSA)
- Amy Bennett, OpenTheGovernment.org
- Gavin Baker, OMB Watch
- Wayne Moses Burke, Open Forum Foundation/OpenTheGovernment.org
With the second round of Open Government Plans due on April 9, GSA reached out to this team to get input on their draft plan. They shared with us the new initiatives they are planning and we gave them feedback on them. In addition, we recommended that they tie version 2.0 of the plans to version 1.0 at least through a lessons learned section that would celebrate the accomplishments, explain the failures and missed deadlines, and share how those experiences influenced the creation of this new plan.
