CTG RELEASES OPEN GOVERNMENT PUBLIC VALUE ASSESSEMENT TOOL
CTG has released a new tool for government leaders: the Open Government Portfolio Public Value Assessment Tool (PVAT). The tool comes as the Obama Administration celebrates the one-year anniversary of federal agency open government plans. PVAT offers government leaders an approach to making better informed decisions about their open government investments by providing a structured way for governments to assess the public value of each of their initiatives.
