Last year, President Obama signed the Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government as his first executive action, ushering in a new era of open and accountable government meant to bridge the gap between the American people and their government. The Obama Administration is reshaping government according to three core values:
Transparency. Government should provide citizens with information about what their government is doing so that government can be held accountable;
Participation. Government should actively solicit expertise from outside Washington so that it makes policies with the benefit of the best information-
Collaboration. Government officials should work together with one another and with citizens as part of doing their job of solving national problems.
