In tackling the administration’s open government initiative, the Department of Defense must walk a fine line to balance the imperatives of public transparency with the protection of national security. Have security concerns made transparency a greater challenge for DoD agencies? Moving forward, what resources do DoD agencies need to foster greater openness and collaboration?

The Government Business Council (GBC), the research division of Government Executive, recently launched a survey on the unique challenge of fostering inter-agency collaboration at the Department of Defense. Please join us for a webinar on Wednesday, October 20th at 2 PM ET to hear the results of this study. You will gain key insights from federal managers, including:

* What actions DoD agencies have taken to become more transparent and collaborative
* How effective DoD’s initiatives have been in fostering public participation and inter-agency dialogue
* The obstacles agencies face in collaborating with one another
* The tools agencies need to overcome those obstacles
