Join OTG, OGIS, and the Newseum Institute for “OGIS at 5” on October 31st

The Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) opened its doors five years ago, with responsibilities to mediate disputes regarding Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests between requesters and federal agencies, and to provide Congress and the President with recommendations on how to improve agencies compliance with the FOIA.

At five years old, OGIS faces challenges and changes. Join OGIS, OpenTheGovernment.org and the Newseum Institute for a half-day discussion on OGIS’ past and future, beginning at 8 a.m. Oct. 31. The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
