The Transparency Task Force’s First Question
The Transparency Task Force is actively seeking input from the public about issues related to transparency and will work to identify what information the public most wants FDA to be transparent about. The public comments will inform the recommendations the Task Force will provide to the Commissioner about ways the agency can become more transparent.
To fully utilize this blog and help categorize and focus the conversations on it we will post a new question and/or topic every week until the Transparency Task Force public meeting is held on Wednesday, June 24, 2009. We will begin by posting, one at a time, the questions we asked in the Federal Register notice we published on June 3, 2008.
The first question is relatively general. Still, we really would like to hear everyone’s initial thinking on it:
How can the agency better explain its operations, activities, processes and decision making?
