NASA Launches Open Gov Status Dashboard

Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Monday, November 22, 2010

image As part of NASA's Open Government plan released on April 7th, 2010, we asked each the participating organizations to set milestones for integrating additional components of Open Government into their programs at the three month, six month, one year, and two year marks. It's been just about three months since the release of the plan, and we're happy to report that there has been much progress in making NASA more transparent, participatory, and collaborative in line with the values of President Obama's Open Government Initiative. From gaining approval to release open source software on GitHub and Sourceforge to creating a new collaborative portal for teachers to interact with NASA, we're striving to incorporate open government into every facet of our mission.

Some ideas, on the other hand, have taken a little longer than we anticipated and need some extra time in order to be done correctly. To articulate the status of all of these milestones, we're launching the new Open Government Status Dashboard, which details the status of all 39 three-month goals in an easy-to-read format. We'll work to keep this status page updates as milestones are achieved.

We hope the new Status Dashboard will make it easy for you to track the progress of our goals and inform you of new and exciting things within NASA. As we said in the original plan, all of these goals are fluid - you'll see things added, deleted, or moved around as we work to determine the best path towards openness. If you have any questions or comments, we encourage you to use the NASA Open Government Plan IdeaScale website, which we'll be monitoring for ideas on how to best move forward in the future.
