FOIA Requester Roundtables

The Office of Information Policy (OIP) will be teaming with the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) to host a series of roundtable discussions with the FOIA requester community in the upcoming months.  These regular roundtable discussions will focus on issues surrounding requests made for various types of records, such as law enforcement records, records on third parties, and contractor and other business-related records, as well as the procedural issue of document referrals and consultations.  These sessions will provide the FOIA requester community an opportunity to participate in the exchange of ideas and will help increase understanding of the issues surrounding these various topical areas.
