The OMG Flyer for the workgroup is available here: http://files.meetup.com/987383/Open%20Government%20Workgroup%20Flyer.pdf
The charter of the workgroup is:
The Open Government work group will be an enabler of government transparency, collaboration and participation by leveraging open standards and internet technologies.
The Open Government Working Group will foster a community of support within OMG and collaborate with other organizations and government stakeholders to articulate a vision of standards based technologies enabling open government. This will be achieved with a combination of white papers, seminars, workshops and a synthesis of existing standards. Where required, the SIG will work with task forces to create new standards to support this mission.
