US CIO Viveck Kundra: Technology and Government and Open Government Dashboard Now Live

Open Government Dashboard Now Live.

US CIO Viveck Kundra Speaks on Technology and Government

It was just two months ago that Federal Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra and Federal Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra (above) both announced the Open Government Directive, the intent of which would be to drive transparency, collaboration (on the state and local level, among others), and cost-saving results. Now comes the launch of version 1.0 of the Open Government Dashboard, a web page that allows the public to track the efficiency of federal agencies in meeting targets for greater transparency.

If you get a chance, check out the site. Here’s a rundown, courtesy of ExecutiveGov, of what you’ll find:

“The website provides color coded evaluations based on five areas. Green means the agency meets expectations, yellow that there is progress towards expectations and red that the agency has failed to meet expectations. The five areas are high-value data, open webpage, data integrity, public consultation and open government plan. The open government plans are not required until April 7, 2010.”
