    OpenOPM site

    Posted 2:52 PM by

    This week we released our Open Government Forum Charter, and based on feedback we received from OpenTheGovernment, we are revising our Open Government Plan. We’ll make Version 1.2 of the plan available in PDF and HTML when we launch our revamped Web site this summer.

    Now is a perfect time to share with us ways you’d like to improve the plan and site!

    Thank you in advance.

    Thank you for your comments on OPM's Open Government Plan. We hope you’ll continue to offer your ideas about and critiques of the plan and its implementation as we go forward with revising it and translating it into action.

    Last week, we submitted a self-evaluation to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). We reformatted the document for the Web and hope you’ll give it a look. We encourage you to use the comment section of this post to tell us what you think.

    We expect to receive evaluations from OMB and at least one public interest group. In the meantime, we’re focusing on writing our charter and forming the many groups described in the Governance and Sustainability section of the plan.

    We’re also redesigning our OpenOPM portal to provide a better user experience. If you have any ideas on how to improve the site, please share those as well.

    Thanks again for your interest. We look forward to hearing your ideas about our plan and how to make OPM a more open agency!

    We are very excited about the opportunity to dialog with you our stakeholders – employees, unions, the public, academia, other agencies, and non-profit organizations – to create a more transparent, participatory, and collaborative Government.

    Through our OpenOPM portal (, we fully expect to receive some innovative ideas from our stakeholders that will improve our business processes to better serve the American public.

    While this particular plan focuses on the Flagship Initiative, to bring collaboration and knowledge management tools to OPM, many aspects of Human Resource functionality are subjects that need innovation and improvement.

    We welcome your ideas and will forward them to the appropriate office within the agency for proper consideration and inclusion in our internal policies and procedures going forward.

    Thanks for visiting us.
