My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act.  USAToday 

Now the Obama administration didn't start this, it was started under the Bush administration after thirty years of White House compliance with the FOIA, but the Obama administration formalized it... somewhat odd behavior for an administration "committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness".
