The President’s Executive Order and accompanying Open Data Policy – Managing Information as an Asset, issued on May 9, 2013, expand on the principles of Open Government to make the Federal government more open, transparent and collaborative with its citizens, stakeholders and the public. When put to work to meet recent open data standards, these tools make program funding and performance data visible and easy to use.
Open Data Solutions for Government Agencies
