Transparent, Participatory, and Collaborative Government

Recently the National Academy of Public Administration posted a report, written by its Collaboration Project Advisory Panel, that proposed ways in which the President can foster transparent, participatory, and collaborative government. If you want to participate in a growing conversation about the latter, here are several options:
  • To learn more about the Collaboration Project and join the conversation, go here;
  • To provide input more directly via OMB's MAX Federal Community, go here; and
  • To participate in related forums on GovLoop, a growing social network, go here.

If you can make a reasoned argument for ways to make government information more accessible, use social media to increase interactivity between government and citizen, or foster a collaborative culture to get better outcomes, your voice needs to be heard right now.
