Deadline for Drafting Phase of US Open Government Initiative

From: Novak, Kevin <KevinNovak@aia.org>
Date: Thu, 25 Jun 2009 09:00:12 -0400
Message-ID: <7D3AB086C3D86347AE8225DE8190296B04E4896D@AIA-NT1.aia.org>
To: "eGov IG" <public-egov-ig@w3.org>
Cc: "Karen Myers" <karen@w3.org>, "Newhouse, Vera" <Vera.Newhouse@edelman.com>, "Michelle Adamic" <madamic@w3.org>


Sorry to not send this before. I had tweeted (@novakkevin) much about
this when I was on the White House call on Tuesday but failed to send an
email. I used the #w3cegov, #opengov, #whitehouse, and #ostp hash tags
if you want to search for the tweets.


Below is information from the US Open Government Team. The 3rd phase has
begun and ends this Sunday at Midnight (EST) (commenting will continue
through next Tuesday). I encourage you all to contribute to what is
being dubbed the "drafting" phase. You will note that the site has taken
the form of a WIKI with much structure around topics from Phase 1 and
Phase 2 that the Open Gov Team would like assistance with. As before,
please identify yourself as a member of the IG if your submission is
consistent with the group document, messages, and consensus opinions. 


The goal of the exercise is to get aid in developing executive policies
and approaches that can be incorporated into the 2010 budget cycle. The
Open Gov team is not looking for items and topics that would require
legislation at this time. It would seem they want to continue with the
low-hanging fruit and to attempt to make as much progress as possible
without engaging the legislative process. Items requiring such would be
handled later.


Any questions or comments, please feel free to drop me a call/email.


(Text from open gov email update below)


Phase III, the Drafting Phase, will begin on Monday, June 22nd.


Today, we posted the final Participation posting, "Enhancing Online
Citizen Participation through Policy"
