Feds get new tool for online public feedback,
The Transparency Project is mandating use of this online feedback tool for all Govt. Depts, by spring.

Take a peek at the idea, whadda you think?
good idea?
Will it be effective ?

The U.S. General Services Administration announced on Tuesday a new tool designed to help federal departments and agencies solicit ideas from the public as mandated by the Obama Administration's recent Open Government Directive.

The tool, which will be made available free of charge to any federal department or agency, will allow members of the public to submit ideas and vote or comment on others' ideas. The tools will go live on the Web site of each participating agency or department on February 6, and will be active for five weeks.

The hope, at least among participating departments and agencies, is that having a single tool that can be used across the federal government will make it easy for members of the public to engage with as many agencies as they wish, and to help government bureaucrats meet the requirements of the Open Government Directive, which is built around fostering transparency, participation and collaboration.
Every federal agency must submit a report by April 7 as to how they plan to meet those requirements.
