Abstract An Open Government is one that is transparent, publishing government data that generates significant benefit for citizens and which helps the public hold the government accountable. An Open Government embraces the notion of public participation in the work of government. And it's one that is effective at encouraging collaboration across the government and with the world outside government. Above all, an Open Government is one that works better--one that leverages the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration to deliver better results to the American people. This Open Government Plan represents the official response of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the White House's Open Government Directive, issued on December 8, 2009. The plan embraces the idea of working proactively and energetically to advance a culture of Open Government at HHS. We have created an Open Government Steering Group, designated senior accountable officials for Open Government, and formally charged our department-wide Data Council, Chief Information Officer Council, and Innovation Council with a range of Open Government responsibilities. Through these bodies, we will help catalyze Open Government action across HHS, supporting the work of leaders and innovators to advance Open Government at every level through education, communication, and processes that will encourage, share and celebrate best practices, including a new Secretary's Innovation Awards program.
