Website allows public to track FOIA requests
By Donald W. Meyers
Federal News Radio reports that the National Archives, the Department of Commerce and the Environmental Protection Agency are launching a website that will allow people to track Freedom of Information Act requests, as well as see what’s been released.
FOIAonline allows people to also communicate with FOIA officers, as well as file requests and monitor where their requests are in the system. The agencies can also use the website to fill requests, posting documents online for the requester and anyone else who would be interested in them.
