Technology impacts every aspect of how federal agencies serve U.S. citizens. Federal agencies use technology to improve customer service and internal business processes.
Managing information as a resource for the public good is a goal of the federal Open Data Policy. As you use technologies to manage your agency's data and information, use the guidance provided in OMB Memorandum M-13-13: Open Data Policy—Managing Information as an Asset (PDF, 6 MB, 12 pages, May 2013), in accordance with the May 9, 2013 Executive Order—Making Open and Machine Readable the New Default for Government Information.
