Open Government Plan


Start: 2010-04-07, Publication: 2010-05-09


This Open Government Plan for the Department of Education articulates Secretary Arne Duncan’s response to the Office of Management and Budget’s Open Government Directive (OMB M-10-06). The Open Government Directive requires Departments and Agencies to document specific steps that will achieve the transparency, participation, and collaboration goals of President Obama and his Administration. More importantly, this plan expresses the values that are held by the Secretary and that permeate this Department concerning the role of transparency and citizen-centered government.

The Department of Education (ED) embraces the principles of increased transparency, participation and collaboration as essential to accomplishing its mission. By focusing on practices and opening the gates to data, we anticipate the creation of new information and knowledge that will help to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.
