GSA to Establish Open Government Federal Advisory Committee

The U.S. General Services Administration is planning to form an Open Government Federal Advisory Committee, which will serve as an advisory body to the agency on initiatives promoting government transparency.

The OG FAC’s primary function will be to provide expert advice on the development, implementation and monitoring of the U.S. Open Government National Action Plans, the GSA said.

Additionally, the committee will offer guidance on expanding public access to government information, fostering inclusivity in open government efforts and strengthening public participation in the regulatory process.

GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan emphasized that strengthening the collaboration between the GSA and civil society fortifies democracy by improving collective understanding and efforts toward an open government.

GSA is seeking nominations for individuals with diverse backgrounds and expertise to join the committee. To learn more about the selection process and timeline, interested parties can attend a virtual public Q&A session hosted by the GSA Open Government Secretariat on May 10.
