We at OGIS talk quite a bit about the importance of the FOIA administrative process, which includes the all-important appeal. But what is an appeal, exactly, and what should it include? What are some best practices for an agency’s appeal process? How can the FOIA and the appeals offices better work together?

We will discuss these appeals-related questions and more at the next FOIA Requester Roundtable, “Maximizing the Administrative Appeal Process.” Sponsored by OGIS and the Department of Justice’s Office of Information Policy (OIP), the meeting is from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Thursday November 7 at OIP, 1425 New York Avenue, NW, Suite 11050 in Washington, D.C. Feel free to bring your lunch for this mealtime discussion.

If you are interested in attending, e-mail your name and phone number to OIP’s Training Officer at DOJ.OIP.FOIA@usdoj.gov with the subject line “November Requester Roundtable Registration.” Space for this meeting is limited, so registration is required. You will need a picture ID to enter the building.  If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact OIP’s Training Officer at (202) 514-3642.
