Open Source for America (OSFA) has announced a report card scoring the openness of federal agencies and departments! Today marks the six-month anniversary of the Obama Administration's Open Government Directive, a big step towards greater transparency, collaboration, and participation in government.
OSFA has posted a draft of its report criteria for review and comment on IdeaScale, and has invited the opensource.com community to participate. The report card is part of OSFA's broader effort to centralize open source advocacy and focusing on overall openness appears to be a good place to start. Read the full press announcement.
