Mayor Murray signs historic Open Data Executive Order
2/26/2016

Mayor Ed Murray renewed the City of Seattle's commitment to transparency by signing an Executive Order directing all City departments to comply with a new open data policy, which he announced during the 2016 State of the City address. The policy directs all City data to be "open by preference" - meaning City departments will always make their data as accessible as possible to the public, after screening for privacy, security, and quality considerations. This policy is the result of a collaboration between the City of Seattle, the University of Washington, and the Sunlight Foundation through Bloomberg Philanthropies' national What Works Cities initiative.
