Twelve of 19 federal agencies received a failing grade on a calendar transparency report card released Tuesday by a public accountability watchdog group.
Protect the Public’s Trust graded agencies on the accessibility, quality, completeness, and timeliness of their meeting calendars. If an agency met all four criteria, they received an A. If they met none, they received an F.
Protect the Public’s Trust gave an F for calendar transparency to the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Transportation, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the Office of Personnel Management, Small Business Administration, and U.S. Agency for International Development.
These agencies flunked because they didn’t provide public calendars for their administrators that are easily accessible to the public.
