Starting the OMG Open Government Workgroup

Submitted by CoryCasanave

We had the kickoff meeting of the “GovDTF” Open Government Working Group on Thursday, Sept. 17th at 1pm as part of the OMG meeting in San Antonio, Texas.  The President’s open government initiative represents a real opportunity to make a difference and show the relevance of standards for open architectures.  The group refined the charter and started on the process of building the groups persona and web presense.

The charter of the group is:

----------------------------------------- Draft Charter ------------------------------------------------------------------

The Open Government work group will be an enabler of government transparency, collaboration and participation by leveraging open standards and internet technologies.

The Open Government Working Group will foster a community of support within OMG and collaborate with other organizations and government stakeholders to articulate a vision of standards based technologies enabling open government. This will be achieved with a combination of white papers, seminars, workshops and a synthesis of existing standards, as well as new standards where required.
