THE PATH FORWARD - The Department of Defense is strongly committed to pursuing goals of the Open Government Directive and sees this plan and its current work as a starting point from which to improve and expand. As we discussed in detail throughout this document, there are a variety of ways already available for the public to learn about activities and inner-workings of the Department and its over three million uniformed and civilian personnel. In the coming months, we will continue to bring together key officials from across the Department to formalize a governance structure and create detailed procedures for an increased culture of transparency while protecting national security. We are also committed to regularly evaluating our progress and making adjustments mid-course if needed. As that process continues, we welcome comments and feedback from the public. Please visit us at www.defense.gov/open for an electronic copy of this document, to leave comments and for more resources related to the Open Government Directive at the Department of Defense.
