Continuing in our series of quarterly FOIA Requester Roundtable meetings, OIP will again be sponsoring meetings between the FOIA requester and agency communities throughout the coming year. Hosted in connection with the Office of Government Information Services, these discussions will focus on various issues that surround the administration of the FOIA throughout the government, and provide an opportunity for the FOIA requester community to participate in the exchange of ideas, with the goal of increasing the understanding of the issues that all parties are faced with when working with the FOIA. These meetings will take place on:
