The White House announced a new Directive to promote transparency, collaboration, and accountability across the federal government. The Directive builds on President Obama's Open Government Memo, issued in January 2009. The Directive will establish benchmarks, and require agencies to create new websites and plans to promote transparency. Competitions are also planned. EPIC submitted comments on the Directive, calling for both stronger privacy safeguards and greater transparency. For more information, see EPIC Open Government.
