OIP’s Requester Roundtable series picks up again this summer, once again providing an open forum for the FOIA requester community and agency personal to discuss various topics in FOIA administration.
Originally scheduled for January 22, 2014 (cancelled due to inclement weather), the June meeting will focus on how agencies provide estimated dates of completion to FOIA requesters. Hosted in conjunction with the Office of Government Information Services, participants at this upcoming meeting will discuss agency implementation of this statutory requirement and will build off both agency best practices and OIP’s guidance regarding the importance of good communication with requesters. Specifically, the meeting will highlight the various ways agencies provide estimated dates of completion to requesters and the experience of requesters in requesting and receiving such information from agencies.
The details for this meeting are:
