OGAG has created three subgroups in order to peruse issue in greater depth:
OGAG Engagement. The OGAG Engagement group helps ensure OGAG is reaching a wide variety of stakeholders who may want to participate in discussions related to Open Government. This includes thinking about locations of meetings, external communications and outreach to specific groups. Chair: Traci Hughes
Information Access. The Information Access group works on making information accessible to the public and across government. This includes areas like open data and FOIA. Importantly, the group will consider information access under the same guidelines imposed under FOIA for the release or withholding of records. Chair: Barney Krucoff
Participation and Collaboration.  The Participation and Collaboration group looks for ways to open up policy making in DC government to the public. This includes events like hackathons, as well as design challenges – events that invite the public to be part of solutions to problems facing government. Chair: Vacant
Transparency and Understandability of Information. The Transparency and Understandability of Information group looks for ways to make the increasing about of information available to the public not only transparent, but also understandable. This includes thinking about how the public accesses information as well providing resources to help residents navigate and understand what is being presented. Chair: Sandra Moscoso
