SBA seeks comments on increased openness
WASHINGTON (3/9/10)—Interested parties have until March 19 to send their ideas to the U.S. Small Business Administration on how the agency can become “more transparent, participatory, and collaborative.” The request for public comment is in accordance with the Obama administration’s “Open Government Initiative,” under which certain federal agencies are required to publish a plan, one that incorporates public comment, on becoming more transparent. Some commenters have already recommended that the SBA consider such things as improving functionalities of the agency website, offering specific data like performance metrics, and participating in online communities. Questions can be directed to opengov@sba.gov. Thirty-six government agencies, including the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., are listed on a government website as being required to seek public comment on becoming more open. The National Credit Union Administration is not on the list.
