Training and Development

Practical scholarship and assistance from Universities - the University Network for Collaborative Governance

Build on the growing effort for "universities to be more practical" by having regular exchanges on information sharing, citizen engagement, and collaboration with a wide range of colleges and universities, especially reaching to students and scholars in "public service" fields.

One entity which can help is the University Network for Collaborative Governance - http://www.policyconsensus.org/uncg/index.html

Between Federal Agencies

Direct the Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) to develop plans for collaborative projects that engage the public on regional issues

Most of the Federal government is actually not based in Washington, DC. Approximately 88 percent of all Federal employees work outside the National Capital Region. Federal programs have their impact largely through the actions of the field representatives of the departments and agencies. The Federal Executive Boards are a forum for communication and collaboration among Federal agencies outside of Washington, DC.

Between Federal, State, and Local Governments

Convene a discussion on alternatives for the storage and disposal of spent reactor fuel.

Convene a discussion on alternatives for the storage and disposal of spent reactor fuel. With the storage disposal mechanism at Yucca Mountain off the table and a desire to use nuclear power to reduce carbon use, there is an opportunity to demonstrate the value of public participation and collaboration.

This idea was developed by Federal managers at a conference on March 30-31, called Champions of Participation, which... more »

Making Government Operations More Open

Establish Stakeholder Perspectives

I'm using this approach in the city of Portland and have used it with geographically dispersed and local organizations (communities).

The first step is to build the stakeholder matrix by identifying the stakeholder groups, and their interests. Measurements are developed that support the interests. By considering all the major stakeholder groups a balance set of measurements can be established. It is very important... more »

Public-Private Partnerships

Open Government Dialogue

I posted this as a comment but decided it really needed to be out front where people will notice it. So here it is.

Here's an interesting side note. At this time 14,161 people have registered on this forum. Out of all those members 10 members have contributed more than 10 percent of the ideas. If you categorize the ideas, counting all the birth control ones as a single idea for example, then those 10 members have... more »

Making Data More Accessible

Global Architecture Integration Network Initiaive

There is a key enabler for collaboration, transparency, and more effective and efficient government. That key enabler is to be able to share, understand and federate our enterprise-business and I.T. architectures at all levels. Architecture, in this sense, is inclusive: embracing everything from a multi-national plan to the structure of a database. Architectures describe organizations, systems of systems, individual... more »

Public-Private Partnerships

Survey

I guess I misunderstood the purpose of this site so I only have myself to blame for feeling more depressed than excited about my experience. Depression translates into less participation of course. It would be interesting to take a survey to find out how each participant - i.e. did this experience increase or decrease the feeling that they were really participating in a dialogue that would be read by the President.... more »

Between Federal Agencies

Have Federal Employees Twitter/Microblog their Work/Results

I think that Federal Employees across the nation should Tweet the project that they are working on, or tasks they are completing. Once a day, twice a week, whatever. We could then create individual networks for specific Agencies, Departments, and Offices, so the American people can track the progress employees are making.

The information could then be compiled at the end of the week to give a graphical representation... more »
