Open Government National Action Plan now available for review
The latest iteration of the U.S. Public Participation Playbook, part of the U.S. Open Government National Action Plan, is now available for review. IAP2 and its membership have continued to provide input over the last several months as it has developed, and it’s improved significantly from its early versions, but it still has a ways to go.
According to its developers, the resource is “a living document in Open Beta stage, and stakeholders from inside or outside of government are encouraged to continually offer new insights—including new plays, the latest case studies, or the most current performance metrics—to the playbook.” The development team will continue to evaluate, incorporate, and publicly report on new contributions.
The announcement, including information about the playbook, is at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2015/02/03/announcing-us-public-participation-playbook

Identifying best practices in public participation has been listed as an open government priority, and was included in both the first and second U.S. Open Government National Action Plans as part of the United States effort to increase public integrity in government programs. The playbook is meant to help government better build more responsive and efficient public participation programs and measure their effectiveness.
