Making Government Operations More Open

Promote Open Government and Protect Privacy

We have open government laws and privacy laws for the federal government. Individual privacy and government transparency are complementary ideals in a democratic society. Open government helps ensure transparency and enhance public participation. Privacy protections bolster public confidence in the government’s treatment of citizens. Citizens are better able to participate in government initiatives when they are certain the Administration will safeguard their personal information.


EPIC recommends that the Administration pursue policies that support both open government and privacy protection.
