A nonequilibrium open system is studied in the projection operator formalism. The environment may linearly deviate from its initial state under the reaction from the open system. If the relevant statistical operator of the system is a generalized canonical one, the transport equation, the second kind of fluctuation-dissipation theorem and the entropy production rate of the open system can be derived and expressed in terms of correlation functions of fluctuations of random forces and interaction random forces.
