Public and Agency Involvement

[get-content name="open-index" include-tag="false" /]

The public and agency involvement component emphasizes extensive public and employee engagement in the development of the plan. We want to hear your recommendations for this component of NARA’s Open Government Plan. Please visit the Open Government Idea Forum and NARAtions Blog to submit your ideas for improving participation at NARA.

The Open Government Directive requires a plan to follow these guidelines:

Your agency's Open Government Plan should include, but not be limited to, the requirements set forth in this attachment. Extensive public and employee engagement should take place during the formation of this plan, which should lead to the incorporation of relevant and useful ideas developed in that dialogue. Public engagement should continue to be part of your agency's periodic review and modification of its plan. Your agency should respond to public feedback on a regular basis.
