OIP Announces Additional FOIA Training Dates

Today, the Office of Information Policy (OIP) announces new dates for FOIA training for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2023.  As part of its responsibility to encourage agency compliance with the FOIA, OIP offers numerous training opportunities throughout the year for agency FOIA professionals and individuals with FOIA responsibilities. 

These courses are designed to offer training opportunities for personnel from all stages of the FOIA workforce, from new hires to the experienced FOIA professionals or FOIA managers.  OIP will continue to offer virtual training sessions that will be taught in real-time by OIP instructors.  We are pleased to announce these virtual training courses, which are also available on OIP’s Eventbrite page.
