Open Books: Transparency, Accountability and the Economic Stimulus Package

 

April 2
10AM PT, 1PM ET
Duration: 1 hour

Event Description

Join GOVERNING to discuss how the billions of federal stimulus dollars add a new wrinkle to the challenge of making government information simultaneously more accessible and more secure. Hear from a panel of experts as they share insights and answer critical questions:

  • How are governments planning to deal with challenging obligations organizationally, culturally and technologically?
  • What systems have state and local governments previously put in place to publicly track and monitor contracts and spending? Can they serve as a template for new American Recovery and Reinvestment Act requirements?
  • What lessons have government organizations learned from past and current transparency efforts that will shape how they, and others, respond to the specific ARRA requirements?
