Open Government

The FLRA is committed to the government's goals of transparency, participation, and collaboration for the American population.  Consistent with this commitment, the FLRA has a Plain Language initiative, which includes our Plain Language web page.

Our Plan


The FLRA will provide citizens with current information about the case filings and closings in the various components of the agency.  The most recent information on case processing can be found in the FLRA's FY 2016 Performance and Accountability Report.  The FLRA will post future reports on the agency's Public Affairs webpage, where you can also find earlier reports.    

The FLRA also provides updated information on the number of open and closed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) cases.  In FY 2016, the FLRA has already received and processed several FOIA cases.  This fiscal year's quarterly datasets, as well as last year's annual report (including a machine readable version), are continuously updated and can be found in the FLRA's Electronic Reading Room.  Six year's worth of historical FOIA data is provided on the reading room webpage.  

The FLRA's website additionally provides information on the agency's administration and structure, including an organizational chart, as well as staffing information.  Additionally, the FLRA's strategic plans are available to the public.  As part of the agency's strategic planning efforts, and consistent with the government-wide initiative to leverage existing data to facilitate agencies’ programmatic work, the FLRA monitors its progress in accomplishing the goals and measures set forth in the agency’s Annual Performance Plan.  The FLRA makes its Congressional Budget Justifications and its Performance Plans available to the public on the agency's Public Affairs webpage.  The agency is also currently in the process of ensuring that its available data is submitted to the data.gov project in an "open" format.

While the FLRA recognizes the value of providing data and information to various stakeholders, protecting the privacy of both federal employees and the public is also a high priority at the agency.  On the FLRA’s Privacy Policy webpage, you can find information on how the agency handles personally identifiable information, what information is collected and stored, and instructions for submitting a Privacy Act request.  On the Privacy Policy webpage, you can also find the FLRA’s Privacy Impact Assessments and its System of Records Notices.  


The FLRA will continue to solicit advice from experts both inside and outside of government in the development or refinement of policies and procedures.  The FLRA has seen significant strides in its "Engage the FLRA" initiative for incorporating the public's ideas into creative and proactive procedures.


The FLRA is committed to collaborating with the public and other government agencies and industry to find innovative ways to accomplish its mission.  The FLRA will continue to reach out to these parties in the same manner it did, for example, during the General Counsel's recent workshops to “to engage federal workers to design the future workplace.”
