Description
 
In March 2009, the Attorney General issued guidelines that encouraged agencies to release records requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), improve administration of their FOIA operations, and ensure timely disclosure of information to the public. In light of this guidance, this report determined: (1) What actions have agencies taken to manage their FOIA programs, including reducing backlogs and use of exemptions, pursuant to the Attorney Generaläó»s 2009 FOIA guidelines, and what have been the results of these actions?; (2) What actions have agencies taken to make records available to the public by electronic means, pursuant to the e-FOIA Amendments of 1996?; (3) To what extent have agencies implemented technology to support FOIA processing? The report analyzed statistics and documents, reviewed FOIA libraries, and conducted interviews with officials at 16 agency components within the Depts. of Homeland Security (DHS), Defense (DOD), Justice, and Health and Human Services (HHS) -- the four agencies that received the most FOIA requests in FY2010. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
