An official website of the United States government
The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you’re on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser’s address (or “location”) bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that’s been signed by the U.S. government. The https:// means all transmitted data is encrypted — in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
DIGITAL GOVERNMENT STRATEGY & OPEN DATA POLICY
The government must be able to deliver information and services to the American people anytime, anywhere and on any platform or device. For far too long, agencies delivered their information in programmatic silos, missing opportunities for coordination or collaborative partnerships. The Digital Government Strategy was developed to provide agencies with guidance on improving digital services and to enable the government to thrive within the fast-paced, ever-changing world of technology.
Designing for openness from the start – making open data the default for government IT systems and embracing the use of web APIs – will enable government to more easily deliver information and services through multiple channels, including mobile, and engage the public and America’s entrepreneurs as partners in building a better government.
