April FOIA Requester Roundtable

April 11, 2013

Later this month we will be continuing our series of FOIA Requester Roundtable meetings, once again bringing together the FOIA requester community and agency FOIA professionals in an open forum for discussions regarding FOIA administration.

The topic of this meeting, hosted in conjunction with the Office of Government Information Services, will be the FOIA's fee and fee waiver provisions.  The discussion will focus on an overview of the current fee structure and some of the challenges in administering this area of the law.

The details for this meeting are:

FOIA Requester Roundtable Meeting
FOIA Fees and Fee Waivers
Department of Justice – Office of Information Policy
1425 New York Avenue, NW – Suite 11050
April 24, 2013, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

We hope that you can join us for this discussion, which is open to members of the public as well as to all interested agency personnel.  These Requester Roundtable discussions provide an opportunity for the FOIA community to participate in the exchange of ideas with agency personnel, with the goal of increasing the understanding of the issues that all parties face when working with the FOIA.
