Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 is shaping up to be a busy one for OGIS, just as FY 2014 was. Want to learn more about OGIS’s FY 2014? Check out our annual report: Building a Bridge Between FOIA Requesters & Federal Agencies 2015 Report for FY 2014. We’ve got a nifty page-turn version on our website, along with a less-fancy PDF version.
Our two key accomplishments in FY 2014: establishing a new team to review agency Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) policies, procedures, and compliance, and establishing a new FOIA Advisory Committee.
Regular readers of this blog know we’ve posted a lot about the FOIA Advisory Committee, established under the direction of our parent agency, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as part of the Second U.S. Open Government National Action Plan. (Mark your calendars–the Committee next meets on Tuesday April 21.)
Stay tuned for more information about our FOIA agency assessment program—including our report on NARA’s Special Access and FOIA program. In case you missed it, we released our first agency assessment of NARA’s Office of General Counsel in November.
Happy reading! And let us know what you think in the comments section.
