The President's Memorandum calls for the development of recommendations for a Directive. This Directive will, in turn, instruct departments and agencies on specific actions that implement the principles outlined in the President's memorandum:

  • Transparency — "[P]ut information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public."
  • Participation — "[O]ffer Americans increased opportunities to participate in policymaking."
  • Collaboration — "[U]se innovative tools, methods, and systems to cooperate . . . across all levels of Government and with nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals in the private sector."

The implementation of the Memorandum will be conducted as a collaborative, interagency process.
