Leading Open Government

On May 5, the White House Open Government Blog posted the "the first in a series of in-depth profiles of open government plans from across the Executive Branch."

The first plan tackled: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). By all accounts, NASA is, as the title of the blog post suggests, "Leading the Open Government Movement." NASA's plan ranked as the strongest overall in our recent audit. The plan not only addressed every requirement of the Open Government Directive, it exceeded expectations in many areas.

The final purpose of the in-depth series is not clear yet: are they only featuring agencies that produced strong plans to serve as an example for other agencies, will agencies that failed to meet the requirements explain how they will improve their plans to meet the requirements?

One thing is sure though: we look forward to reading more of this series in the future.
