FOIA RESOURCES

  • FOIA Post

    An online replacement for FOIA Update, established by the

    Office of Information Policy in 2001.

  • FOIA Update

    A newsletter containing FOIA information and guidance for federal

    agencies that was published by the Office of Information Policy

    from 1979-2000 (all issues compiled and keyword searchable).

PRIVACY ACT RESOURCES

    The Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties (OPCL) has primary responsibility for Department of Justice privacy policy. Accordingly, Privacy Act guidance is no longer published by the Office of Information Policy. Privacy and civil liberties resources, including the text of the Privacy Act and the Overview of the Privacy Act of 1974, are now available on OPCL's website.

Other FOIA Reference materials are accessible in the Archive section of the Department website.
