FOIA Ombuds Observer
The Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) offers dispute resolution services to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requesters and¬†agencies. This function allows OGIS to observe and examine the interactions between requesters and agencies across the Federal government, and note¬†common questions and issues that arise in the FOIA process. The FOIA Ombuds Observer addresses questions and issues frequently seen in our¬†individual cases. Our goal is to increase efficiency and transparency in the FOIA process.
