"On his first day in office, President Obama signed the Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government and made clear his commitment to “creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.” The President laid out the three core values that would promote efficiency and effectiveness in government:  transparency, participation, and collaboration.

"With our tradition of science and research, the Department of Energy has long seen the benefits of providing access to information and encouraging collaboration. Over the past few years, we’ve made great strides in harnessing new technologies and tools to advance these goals.

"I encourage you to go to to learn more about what we’re doing to build a more efficient, effective and engaged Department of Energy."

-Secretary Ernest Moniz
