  1. Good Morning Gwynne,

    My name is Gerlande Kitt and I work at the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Transparency and Governance. We are responsible for implementing the three principles of Open Government Treasury-wide. I saw your name in an article in a Governnment news paper and read about your work on the Digital Services Innovation Center at GSA. I would like to invite you to speak at our Open Government Steering Committee on December 17, 2012 (from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.) about the Digital Services Innovation Center (for about 15 – 20 minutes), availabile tools and how it can help agencies as they push to implement the Government’s Digital Strategy. Please let me know if you will be able to attend. This will be an opportunity for Open Government Bureau Representatives, Technologists and leaders Treasury-wide to be aware of some of GSA’s Best Practices and tools to assist with implementation of the Government’s Digital Strategy. I look forward to meeting you. Please respond via e-mail at: [email protected]. I thank you in advance for collaborating with Treasury.
