Office of Open Government
The Office of Open Government is charged with providing both the Executive Office of the Governor and each of Florida’s agencies with the guidance and tools to serve Florida with integrity and transparency.
On January 4, 2011 Governor Rick Scott issued Executive Order 11-03 reestablishing the Office of Open Government.
The order states, in part:
“The Office (of Open Government) will (1) facilitate Floridians’ right to know and have access to information with which they can hold government accountable, (2) establish and maintain a website providing ready access to accountability information, (3) continue to assure full and expeditious compliance with Florida’s open government public records laws, and (4) provide training to all executive agencies under my purview on transparency and accountability. The Office will also have primary responsibility for ensuring that the Office of the Governor complies with public records requests in an expeditious manner.”
