President Obama has committed his Administration to work towards new levels of openness in government. For over two and a half years, the Administration has done much tomake information about how government works more accessible to the public, and to solicitcitizens’ participation in government decision-making. Federal agencies have undertaken todisclose more information under the Freedom of Information Act. They have devised ambitiousOpen Government Plans designed to increase opportunities for public engagement. They havemade voluminous information newly available on government websites. They have shined morelight on federal spending. They have even taken steps to provide more disclosure of sensitivegovernment information. Finally, and not least of all, agencies have used technology in manyinnovative ways that make information useful to citizens in their everyday lives. This
Status Report 
provides a review of the progress the Administration has made towards forging a moreopen relationship between citizens and their government. It shows the measurable progressmade so far along many dimensions of the Administration’s open government initiatives. It alsoanticipates some of the next steps towards realizing even more fully the President’s commitmentto unprecedented openness.
