Interactive: Track Whether Agencies Are Following Through on President’s Transparency Orders
It’s been one year since President Barack Obama issued memos ordering more transparency in government. Despite a few smudges over the past year, the administration’s transparency record has been a marked improvement over the previous eight years.
Just how much progress has been made? We’ve put together an interactive chart laying out the deadlines for agencies to complete the transparency tasks ordered via memos by President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the Office of Management and Budget.
But wait! That’s not all. Our Transparency Tracker will show you when federal agencies put up their open government sites, which the OMB directive require by Feb. 6. We’re also watching federal agency Web pages to see when they complete other required tasks, such as putting three “high value” databases on their Web sites.
