On December 8, 2009, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued an Open Government Directive, requiring federal agencies to take specific steps to implement the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration in their operations.

In order to comply with this directive, the FDIC presents the following information:

FDIC Open Government Plan – Revised August 3, 2012
As a part of the Open Government Directive, each agency in the federal government is responsible for publishing a plan that describes how it will improve transparency and integrate public participation and collaboration into its activities.

As a part of this process we will be asking for your input on how we can better be of service. If you have any comments on the Plan please send your comments through email at opengov@fdic.gov.
