Upcoming Requester Roundtable Discussion: FOIA and Mandatory Declassification Reviews (MDRs)

FOIA and Mandatory Declassification Reviews (MDRs) have some things in common — for instance, both provide access to information — but in practical terms they are very different. If you would like to learn more about both, please join OGIS, the Information Security Oversight Office and the Department of Justice’s Office of Information Policy for the next FOIA Requester Roundtable. This discussion between members of the requester community and FOIA staff from agencies across the government will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday July 25, 2012. The roundtable will be at the National Archives building in Washington, D.C. (on Constitution Avenue between 7th and 9th streets, Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter Metro station). Those who cannot attend in person are invited to join by phone. If you would like to attend, please email OGIS at ogis@nara.gov and let us know if we can expect you in person or on the telephone. We will respond with logistical/dial-in information.
