Open Government Standards (†660)Open Government Standards (OpenGovernmentStandards.org, n.d.]).
- transparency (s.v. "The Standards"): Transparency means that information about the activities of public bodies is created and is available to the public, with limited exceptions, in a timely manner, in open data formats and without restrictions on reuse. Transparency mechanisms must include the disclosure of information in response to requests from the public and proactive publication by public bodies. Key information about private bodies should be available either directly or via public bodies. (†1509)
