The U.S. government has directed the Intelligence Community (IC) to move from a Need to Know paradigm to a Need to Share philosophy. Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell created a Information Sharing Steering Committee to move the IC beyond "need to share" philosophy and more to a "responsibility to provide", which embodies the idea of "stewardship" of information (versus ownership).

If it works for the feds federal intelligence community it can be assumed that it should work for the Commonwealth and it is up to this wiki community to test this Need to Share paradigm within State Government.
