The most accessible and secure open source CMS for government available.


For government and public policy organizations, open source only works if it’s built for the security, accessibility and flexibility requirements of the public sector. OpenPublic provides a content management system specially designed for open government goals -- without compromising accessibility, security or usability.

OpenPublic is the most accessible and secure open source CMS for government available.

Gone are the days of proprietary, fully customized content management systems (CMS) that cost millions of dollars to design, build, and maintain. When the collective knowledge of brilliant engineers and creative web professionals fuses in the open source ecosystem, everyone benefits. 

In 2009, the White House chose Drupal as the open source platform for its web site. If the most powerful voice in our nation chooses to tap into global innovation by using an economical, open source platform called Drupal to manage intensely scrutinized, mission-critical content each day and to effectively encourage feedback from citizens ... why wouldn’t you?


Built-in functionality for customization, security and accessibility.
  • Responsive Design

    Customize the look and feel of your site while implementing the best practices in responsive design. OpenPublic provides base themes for customizing your site, which are responsive design ready.

  • Stringent Security

    Government-level security requirements form the foundation of OpenPublic. Passwords comply with Level 2 of NIST'S Electronic Authentication Guidelines, https is pre-configured, and CAPTCHA comes standard on forms.

  • Accessibility and 508 Compliance

    Accessibility and Section 508 Compliance are key foundations to usable websites. OpenPublic's default themes meet ADA guidelines, giving site implementers a head start on testing for their own compliance.

  • Workflow

    Additional user roles found standard in OpenPublic allow you to tailor permissions and customize workflow to your organizational needs.

  • Customizable Look and Feel

    Select (with a single click) either of the beautiful, modern themes -- which are cross-browser compatible -- that come standard, or you can apply your own custom design.

  • Intuitive Dashboard

    The intuitive dashboard makes adding and updating content easy (and enjoyable). And stress-free rich-media management means adding graphics and data visualization elements is as simple as clicking "upload."

  • Media Room

    Quickly release breaking news and information that's important to your constituents. Invite media to access images, video, press releases, and other valuable content in a single, centrally accessible location.

  • Directory Management

    Publish profiles of your agency's leadership and staff members so constituents can understand your background better. Easily and quickly update a directory contact information, whether your team has four or 400 people.

  • Pluggable Features

    Out-of-the-box, OpenPublic comes with pertinent features -- from integrating a Twitter feed to posting blog entries -- that you can enable or disable, depending upon your needs. These pluggable options make customization a cinch.
