This month we will be continuing our series of FOIA Requester Roundtable meetings to host discussions between the FOIA requester community and agency FOIA professionals.
Our next meeting, hosted in conjunction with the Office of Government Information Services, will focus on the topic of record searches, and the challenges faced by government personnel in conducting searches and the opportunities to tailor searches to individual requester needs.
We hope you can join us for this discussion, which is open to agency personnel and members of the public. The details for this meeting are
