The premise of this paper is simple: If public leaders want to pursue opening government, particularly through the use of new technologies and information-centric activities (OMB, 2012; OECD, 2003), then we need to have a good understanding of how all that works. Limited insights are available based on existing research and practice. There are some good guides, tools, techniques, and theories for dealing with technologies and information in the public sector; however none presents a holistic opening government framework, specifically one for understanding and evaluating the impact of different technology, management, and policy choices before they are implemented. This paper offers just such a framework as an aid for government decision makers in designing and implementing open government initiatives.
