GSA Open Government Status Dashboard

GSA’s Open Government Plan contains our transparency, participation, collaboration and flagship activities and milestones that are tracked by fiscal year and quarter. The Open Government Implementation Dashboard shows the status of our progress for implementing open government in GSA. Our implementation dashboard articulates all flagship milestones contained in GSA’s Open Government Plan and will continue to track the progress of our open government implementation. The majority of the milestones from Versions 1 and 2 of GSA’s Open Government Plan are either completed or on schedule for completion. As we continue to add new flagship initiatives, you will be able to track their implementation progress. The status of this page will be updated each quarter.

We recognize that our Open Government Plan is a living document and will evolve. As we continue towards increased transparency, participation, collaboration, and innovation, we will include updates of how these open government principles are integrated in our strategic efforts and mission operations.

The feedback we receive from the public today will help to shape a more open GSA for tomorrow. Please email us at Open.Government@gsa.gov
