Require agencies to explain why the data is "high value"

This entry is a consensus recommendation of seven organizations that work on government transparency of which is one.


Require agencies to explain why the data is high value by having them designate which of the “high value criteria” the data meets: information that can be used to increase agency accountability and responsiveness; improve public knowledge of the agency and its operations; further the core mission of the agency; create economic opportunity; or respond to need and demand as identified through public consultation. Going forward, this will make it easier to track how agencies are complying with the requirements of the Open Government Directive.
