Transparency efforts in government got a huge boost from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Going forward, the request for government organizations to be more transparent will certainly be the norm and opens the door to many questions. Where is transparency headed?

This session will take a look at what has been accomplished and where organizations are headed as the transparency movement continues to grow.
