Next week, the Office of Information Policy (OIP) hosts its first ever training seminar through video conferencing. The training will focus on an overview of the FOIA, and address President Obama’s FOIA Memorandum, Attorney General Holder’s FOIA Guidelines, procedural considerations, and the FOIA’s exemptions.
OIP continually looks for ways to expand its training program, and this new training format will reach a wider audience of federal employees — especially those who work outside the Washington, D.C. metro area. Virtual meeting tools provide an ideal way to train people across the government, while reducing or eliminating travel costs and arrangements.
The details for the training are:
