Open Government

Welcome to the PBGC's Open Government webpage. This page includes important PBGC data sets and information about how the American public can provide input to make PBGC even better and more engaging. The information on this page complements the many other Federal agency data sets located at data.gov.

Achieving Efficiency, Transparency, and Innovation through Reusable and Open Source Software (M-16-21), OMB's Federal Source Software Policy requires federal agencies to "ensure that an appropriate alternatives analysis has been conducted before considering the acquisition of an existing commercial solution or a custom-developed solution."

This memo also requires agencies to publicly post this policy. PBGC's Alternatives Analysis Standard and Methodology (updated October 2, 2017) defines the Corporation's approved process for identifying and recommending an information technology (IT) solutions and products that are the best overall fit for PBGC use.
