Our Transparency Tracker Notices New SEC ‘Open’ Page

Update Jan. 28, 2010 4:55pm EST: Links to the datasets on the SEC’s open page are broken.

Last week we launched our Transparency Tracker, a tool to watch for federal agencies’ open-government Web sites, which the White House ordered them to create by Feb. 6. (You can see our summary of the directive, and a road map of deadlines, here.) Last night, at midnight, our Transparency Tracker spotted the Securities and Exchange Commission’s new open-government page.

The SEC’s page includes three new data sets, which the White House’s Office of Management and Budget told agencies to make available by Jan. 22. So far our tracker has found eight new open-government sites. We’ll continue to post updates when the tracker finds new open-government pages.
