Abstract

Democracy embraces public access to the functions of government, and to its records, as one of the fundamental principles for assuring an informed, participatory electorate. But increased public access through the network, transforming virtually any operating records of government--even as they are created--into public records accessible to citizens, can undermine the primary service functions of government and risks disabling the capability of public officials to have intelligent debate and appropriate discretion in policy development.

Access is potentially threatening the public sector's enthusiasm for technology. This chapter surveys the policy priorities and strategies ahead for assuring that assuring public access does not disable the effectiveness of government in governing.
