Executive Office of the President, Smart Disclosure and Consumer Decision Making: Report of the Task Force on Smart Disclosure (May 30, 2013) (full-text).

Overview Edit

Thia report is the first comprehensive description of smart disclosure approaches being used across the Federal Government. It provides an overview of the ways in which smart disclosure can empower consumers and increase market transparency; describes smart disclosure activities being undertaken by Federal agencies and partners; provides context about government policies that guide and support those activities; and presents examples of concrete steps already being taken by Federal agencies to advance smart disclosure in domains such as health, education, energy, finance, and public safety.

This publication marks an important milestone for the Administration's policy of liberating data for the benefit of the economy and society — a policy that was strengthened and codified in May 2013, by Executive Order 13642 and an associated policy memorandum requiring that, going forward, government data be made available in open, machine-readable formats, while appropriately protecting privacy, confidentiality, and security.
