The USDA IdeaJam has launched

Tags: goverment ideajam.gov2.0
Earlier this month and as part of the Open Government Initiative the USDA launched an IdeaJam to share and collect ideas from US citizens. This site was set up by Elguji Partner Sean Burgess with ANSD Designs based in Laurel, Maryland.

Here you can provide feedback about published data, records, reports & resources provided by us as well as our Open Gov Plan. Let us know how we can improve the quality, value & usefulness of USDA information. Learn more about what we’re doing, discuss ideas by posting comments, and help us improve our programs & operations. If you’d like to post, discuss and vote on your own ideas, head over to the Share Your Ideas section.

My administration is committed to creating and unprecedented level of openness in government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collabortion. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in government.

January 21, 2009 - President Barack Obama
