commitment to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government 
built upon three principles: (1) Transparency--the government should

the Directive, ``is the public roadmap that details how [the] agency

Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government into the core mission 
objectives of [the] agency.'' Open Government Plans are to set forth 
how each agency plans to improve transparency, public participation,
