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.

Details about achievements in these areas can be found on our website, and We invite the public to contribute ideas on ways GSA can become more accountable and accessible. We welcome your feedback as we help to shape a more open government for tomorrow.

The feedback we receive from the public today will help to shape a more open GSA for tomorrow. Please email us at to let us know:
