Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Some more background on how change.gov was created

Dorobek Insider has some additional background on the making of change.gov. 2 things of interest: 1) change.gov’s use of Google moderator, a 3rd party app, which falls under google’s privacy policy rather than the federal government requirements under the [w:Privacy Act of 1974]; and 2) both sides of the political debate seem to be trying to figure out how and why GSA set up change.gov, including submitting FOIA requests.

[thanks for the heads-up Peggy Garvin!]
