The Office of Information Policy is pleased to announce that the Chief FOIA Officers Council will hold a virtual meeting with members of the public on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT. The CFO Council co-chairs, the Directors of OIP and the Office of Government Information Services, look forward to receiving input from the public about the Council's work.
The FOIA directs the Chief FOIA Officers Council to “[d]evelop recommendations for increasing compliance and efficiency; disseminate information about agency experiences, ideas, best practices, and innovative approaches; identify, develop, and coordinate initiatives to increase transparency and compliance; and promote the development and use of common performance measures for agency compliance.” (5 U.S.C. § 552(k)(5)(A)). In performing these duties, the Council “shall consult on a regular basis with members of the public who make [FOIA] requests.” (5 U.S.C. § 552(k)(5)(B)). This meeting fulfills that requirement and is open to the public.
Registration is required on Eventbrite. All attendees must register by 11:59 PM EDT on Monday, January 31, 2022. Registered users will receive access instructions. Additional details about the Chief FOIA Officers Council and the meeting, including the agenda, will be available on the OIP and OGIS websites.
