Open Government Institute

The Open Government Institute promotes research and training on cutting-edge practices and technologies that can make government institutions more transparent to the people they serve.

Priority Projects

OpenGov Innovations Program

The Transparency Foundation supports the identification of breakthrough technologies and practices that help government agencies become more open and transparent. We disseminate our findings through white papers and best practice conferences.

Public Records Resource Center

From the federal government’s Freedom of Information Act to state and local sunshine laws, citizens have rights to request and examine government documents. Too often government agencies do not comply with these laws. The Transparency Foundation provides technical assistance and support to individuals and organizations that seek to force a government agency to comply with the requirements of public record disclosure laws.
