Open Government Information Awareness

The Open Government Information Awareness program is an effort to increase transparency in the United States government. As the US government increases its supervision of civilian lives, it is crucial to ensure accountability. Since democracy requires an informed public, every effort must be made to give citizens access to government information. The Open Government Information Awareness program builds a framework for US citizens to construct and analyze the world's most comprehensive database on our government. Citizens will explore data, track events, find patterns, and build risk profiles, all in an effort to encourage action.
