On December 8, 2009, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) issued an Open Government Directive, requiring federal agencies to take specific steps to implement the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration in their operations.

In order to comply with this directive, the FDIC presents the following information:

FDIC Open Government Plan - Revised May 2021
