Upcoming Refresher Training Session
2009 Agency Annual FOIA Reports

On October 7, 2009, the Office of Information Policy (OIP) will host a refresher training session to discuss the reporting requirements for the Fiscal Year 2009 Annual FOIA Report.

In May 2008 OIP issued new reporting requirements for agency Annual FOIA Reports, available at http://www.usdoj.gov/oip/foiapost/guidance-annualreport-052008.pdf. For the 2009 Annual FOIA Reports agencies should note that they must now complete all charts in Section XII of the Report.

Agency Annual FOIA Reports should be submitted to OIP electronically at DOJ.OIP.FOIA@usdoj.gov no later than January 4th in order to allow sufficient time for OIP to review them prior to posting.

The Refresher Training Session will cover the required elements for all sections of the Annual FOIA Report. The details for this event are listed below:

When: October 7, 2009
   
Where: National Housing Center
1201 15th Street NW
(entrance on 15th and M Street)
   
Time: 10:00 - 12:00 noon

Questions regarding the Training Session may be directed to OIP's Training Officer, Bertina Adams Cleveland, at (202) 514-1010. (posted 9/17/2009)
