Our work - Open GovernmentTweet
Excessive government secrecy erodes public confidence in government. And that secrecy typically has less to do with matters of national security and more to do with hiding corruption, wrongdoing, or gross mismanagement. POGO is working to advance reforms that will enhance the robust implementation of the Freedom of Information Act, as well as reforms that will make more government information disclosed proactively.
