Past and Current U.S. National Action Plans:

Examples of past commitments achieved through the National Action Plan include:

  • We the People: One of the first and most prominent open government commitments, the We the People petitions site has led to major reforms in the United States and has also offered two-way engagement for millions of users.
  • Data.gov: Opening data to the public has a wide ripple-effect. Data.gov today is home to approximately 200,000 datasets for industry, academic, and other use.
  • USAspending.gov: Transforming nearly $4 trillion taxpayer dollars into Open Data, so taxpayers can see the breakdown of where their dollars go in government.
