OpenTheGovernment.org Joins Effort to Increase FOIA Accountability Via Open Government Dashboard

OpenTheGovernment.org joined several coalition partners in sending a letter urging the Administration to include a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) component as part of the White House’s Open Government Dashboard planned to launch on February 6. Including information about agency FOIA performance would send a signal to agencies that they are to be held accountable for reducing FOIA backlogs, as well as implementing the presumption in favor of disclosure.
