Policy

OCIO Policy 187 - Open Data Policy

The Legislature has found that government records and information are a vital resource to both government operations and to the public that government serves. Broad public access to state government records and information has potential for expanding citizen access to that information and for improving government services. Electronic methods for locating and transferring information can improve linkages between and among citizens, organizations, businesses, and governments. (See RCW 43.41A.115)

WSDOT's Open Data Plan (pdf, 100kb) sets forth our plan to establish a path to provide open data and meets the Office of the Chief Information Officer's Policy 187.
