Frequently Asked Questions Open Government

What is collaboration in the context of open government, and how does OPM collaborate with stakeholders?

Collaboration implies partnership – two-way communication and working together to solve problems. To identify ways to become more open and evaluate our progress, we initially formed teams of members from many groups and organizations: offices throughout OPM, our union, other agencies, government watchdog groups and other non-profit entities, and colleges and universities. Internally, this has meant new opportunities for some OPM employees who do not commonly take leadership roles but have great ideas to bring to the table. Externally, it has meant opening a window into our daily work. As we transition from planning to action, many of these individuals remain engaged in our efforts.

We are also working with a broad range of other agencies on technology solutions that will help us organize, find, and share information so we can provide better customer service to our stakeholders.
