Open Government Initiative at Railroad Retirement Board

Transparency * Participation * Collaboration


The three principles of the Open Government Directive are transparency, participation, and collaboration that form the cornerstone of an open government. These principles were set forth in the memorandum on Transparency and Open Government, issued by the President on January 21, 2009.

Transparency promotes accountability by providing the public with information about what the government is doing.

Participation allows members of the public to contribute ideas and expertise so that their government can make policies with the benefit of information that is widely dispersed in society.

Collaboration improves the effectiveness of government by encouraging partnerships and cooperation within the federal government, across levels of government, and between the government and private institutions.

This website will serve as a gateway for all RRB activities related to the Open Government Directive.
