FOIA Implementation Report


Researchers: Please read and comment on this report by the FOIA Advisory Committee on how to improve implementation of the Freedom of Information Act.

Foreign relations historians value the FOIA process for their research.  Historians working as far back as the 1920s rely on FOIA to access information – in some cases, to obtain particular documents, in others to prod agencies to transfer entire record groups to NARA.  Many also regard FOIA as fundamentally important for democratic governance.  Please help the FOIA Advisory Committee in their efforts to improve FOIA implementation by reading, circulating, and commenting on this report.
