The OCDETF FOIA Reading Room contains procedures, common requested records, and proactive documents, all of which are available to the public without making a FOIA request.

Multi-Track Processing

FOIA requests are placed in one of three tracks. Track one is for those requests that seek and receive expedited processing pursuant to subsection (a)(6)(E) of the FOIA. The second track is for those requests that do not involve voluminous records or lengthy consultations with other entities. Track three is for those requests that involve voluminous records and lengthy or numerous consultations, or those requests that may involve sensitive records.
