Open Government Plan, Version 1.0


Start: 2010-04-07, Publication: 2010-05-10


This plan is our official response to President Obama’s call – on his very first day in office – for “an unprecedented level of openness in government… to strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in government.” More specifically this is our response to the changing needs and expectations of workers. We believe the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Open Government Directive set the floor not the ceiling for how federal agencies should interact with the public and with each other. Within this document we set an aggressive agenda and time-table for specific actions that we believe will have a profound impact on the way we do business – and ultimately, improve the services we provide.

The agencies and offices that make up the United States Department of Labor impact the lives of workers every day. From creating pathways to profitable employment, ensuring safe and healthy workplaces, to protecting the rights and wages of workers and retirees across the country, serving working men and women is at the heart of our vision of “Good Jobs for Everyone.” It is what drives our employees in their efforts.
