Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Opinions #27
[submitted through Federal interagency process]
Improve understanding and efficiency of the FOIA process.
The Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) within the National Archives and Records Administration, will issue advisory opinions which will serve to promote the efficient use of FOIA resources. As the FOIA Ombudsman, OGIS observes a wide range of agency practices and is positioned to identify trends and emerging issues that create inefficiencies in the FOIA process. OGIS’s advisory opinions will improve understanding of the FOIA process and encourage the adoption of practices that preserve and maximize agency resources.
OGIS will issue multiple advisory opinions within the plan’s two-year time frame. We expect the first opinion(s) to be issued in Fall 2017.
