This National Plan builds on, but does not replace, the Open Government Initiative inaugurated by the President’s Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government.

Creating a more Open Government requires a sustained commitment by public officials and employees at all levels of government; it also requires an informed and active citizenry. The initiatives we launch today aim to increase public integrity by tackling corruption and by enhancing citizen access to information. They will improve the management of public resources in the U.S. They attempt to improve public services and to spur private sector innovation. Because the American people deserve a 21st Century government, this National Plan embraces the role of technology and innovation in tackling the key challenges that the U.S. and other governments face around the world. In further testament to the value of opening government, many of the ideas presented below were themselves suggested during consultations with the public and non-governmental groups.
