*NSF Launches Open Government Web Page*
*National Science Foundation (02/08/10) Van Pay, Lisa*
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) recently launched a new Web site
designed to encourage participation and collaboration between the agency and
the citizens it serves. The Obama administration's Open Government Directive
has led agencies across the government to establish Open Government Web
pages to collect ideas and suggestions from the public. NSF's Open
Government Web page will enable the public to submit ideas, comment, and
vote for proposed ideas. NSF specifically wants input on access to large
data sets and collaborations that aim to facilitate transformative research.
NSF will publish an official Open Government Plan on April 7, which will
incorporate the submitted ideas and will serve as a roadmap for its efforts
to improve transparency.
