In conclusion, all agencies should apply these points of additional guidance,
together with the guidance previously issued, in the preparation of their future
annual FOIA reports. They should do so with full awareness of their statutory
responsibilities under subsection (e) of the Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552(e),
and further awareness of GAO's attention to this particular of aspect of agency
activity in implementation of the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments.
See FOIA Post, "GAO
E-FOIA Implementation Report Issued" (posted 3/23/01) (noting that
this subject "can be expected to be the subject of continuing congressional
interest"). Any agency needing further guidance in meeting its annual FOIA
report obligations may obtain assistance from the Department of Justice's Office
