Since the Federal digital strategy initiative launched in May 2012, GSA has been working to build interoperability and openness securely into our systems. We are developing common standards and producing better content and data to be delivered through multiple channels in device-agnostic ways. Continually addressing privacy and security in the digital age, we are creating an environment where citizens are increasingly becoming partners in building a better government.
GSA has successfully met its digital-strategy milestones [PDF - 103 KB] remaining agile and flexible, and fundamentally shifting the way we approach digital government. The agency has also pioneered several government-wide solutions called for in the strategy that are helping all agencies implement this important initiative. We will continue to follow the Open Data Policy—Managing Information as an Asset [PDF], and be more open and transparent about our work to serve our partner agencies, and the American public.
