The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has invited public comment on its proposed revisions to Circular No. A-130: Managing Information as a Strategic Resource. Circular A-130 governs how the federal government manages its information resources, and in the 15 years since OMB last revised Circular A-130, information technology has advanced dramatically, enabling government information to play a fundamentally different and more valuable role in the economy and society. The Center for Data Innovation has filed comments describing how OMB should build upon its proposed revisions to include policies that would maximize the value of open government data to the economy and society.
