From the Document: "Throughout his Administration, President Barack Obama has prioritized making government more open and accountable and has taken substantial steps to increase citizen participation, collaboration, and transparency in government. […] Building upon these efforts to create a more efficient, effective, and accountable government, the Administration will issue the second Open Government National Action Plan [NAP] for the United States of America in the coming weeks. The new plan will include a wide range of actions the Administration plans to take over the next two years, including commitments that build upon past successes, as well as several new initiatives. Among these are ambitious new commitments to modernize the administration of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and to significantly expand Open Data initiatives across the Federal government to increase transparency and fuel entrepreneurship, innovation, and economic growth. This report provides an overview of new Open Data and FOIA modernization commitments, as well as highlights of additional proposals that the Administration plans to announce in greater detail in the second NAP, which will be released in December 2013."
