Federal Government: The way to open government and administrative action

More transparency, cooperation and participation are the basis for tomorrow’s administrative work.  Politics and administration should open up, be transparent, enable participation and act cooperatively. More and more citizens expect administrative data and information to be disclosed and they are given the opportunity to contribute their expertise and opinion to the decision-making processes of politics and administration.
