OSTP helping agencies take open gov to '2.0 level'
Wednesday - 4/11/2012, 9:54am EDT
This week agencies finished revising open government plans.
Chris Vein, the deputy chief technology officer for government innovation at OSTP, said his office has been working closely with agencies for the past three years, both in developing and implementing the plans. But it was time to take those plans to the next or "2.0 level," he said in an interview with The Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp.
The main difference Vein said he is seeing is a cultural shift to more collaborative and participatory government.
OSTP meets monthly with all agencies on open government. This allows the agencies to bring up issues they may be having and to crowdsource the solutions, he said.
"It's amazing to see the reactions on the faces of folks as if lightbulbs go off as they hear what other agencies are doing and how they're doing it and what they can do in their own agency," Vein said.
