• Develop momentum among those already implementing open government practices and those now charged with implementing openness practices because of the Directive.
• Dialogue and share knowledge that will help federal agencies implement and private industry benefit from the Open Government Directive.
• Document and make available existing and effective open government practices in the form of the OpenGov Playbook.
Previously, on November 16th, the first half-day workshop provided a platform for thirteen open government project presentation from agencies such as the EPA, DOT, TSA, DOD, CDC, DISA, NIH, GSA, PlainLanguage.Gov, Department of State, and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. (Archived video and slides are available here.)
This workshop (hosted by DOT) will be a full day and include 10 presentations by federal employees engaged in open gov, and three hours of small-group conversations on key aspects of the Open Government Directive.
The agenda will be created by the attendees to maximize the value of everyone's participation. During the event registration process you will be asked to identify what topics you want to learn about and discuss with peers.
The organizers of this event are Giovanni Carnaroli (Associate CIO for IT Policy Oversight at DOT), Tim Schmidt (CTO for DOT), Lucas Cioffi (OnlineTownhalls), Kaliya Hamlin (Unconferences.net), Jenn Gustetic (Phase One), Stephen Buckley (U.S. Transparency), Sandy Heierbacher (National Coalition of Dialogue and Deliberation), Keith Moore (Open Government TV), Chris Golden (SocialGovernment), GovLoop, and the National Academy of Public Administration.
