Five Minutes for FOIAonline


Sunshine in Government wants to know: do you have five minutes to dedicate to talk to agencies about FOIAonline? As we’ve written before, FOIAonline is a web-based FOIA requesting site aimed at streamlining and improving the FOIA process for agencies, requesters, and the general public. (For those interested, OpenTheGovernment.org is currently running a project that compares the use of FOIAonline with other agency processes.) So far, only six agencies are participating. In an effort to boost awareness and participation in the service, Sunshine in Government is conducting a survey of the agencies to find out their familiarity with FOIA online and whether the agency is committed to joining. If you’d like to lend a hand by contacting an agency, email FOIAsurvey@sunshineingovernment.org.
