Future of GovLoop?

Does it help meet the requirements of the Open Gov Directive?

How can agencies use it?

Is it ok for employees to use?  









Blue Sky of a Gov Social Network 

  • Folks need to feel comfortable about sharing
  • Can GovLoop get a ToS agreement like the Gov’t has with YouTube, Facebook, etc.
  • What goes on the public network vs. the internal network?
  • Need to share both internally and externally?
  • What level unit should have a FB fan page? How do you determine the level/scalability of collaborative tools? 


Ideal way to report on requirements 

  • Identify the members of the Open Gov Directive teams at the various agencies publicly – put names and people against the initiatives. Need to have people accountable not just orgs.
  • Any dangers to publicly identifying people? 
  • Place where people can vote/comment on the best ideas of all the agencies? Problems with comparing agencies to other agencies? Needs a community manager.
  • Government to citizen engagement and collaboration – is there a cloud service where customers (the public) can go to a website and actually talk with a person online? Live chat?
  • Is there something on all the websites where someone can just ask a question?



We want a face and a name with the process

We want a directory

We want live help

Link people to information and people 

GovLoop has gone in and done some active tagging of content related to the Open Gov initiative.
