OIP Announces New FOIA Training Dates for Fiscal Year 2024

Today, the Office of Information Policy (OIP) announces new dates for FOIA training for the first half of Fiscal Year 2024.  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 will announce more training opportunities for spring and summer 2024 at a later date.  As Fiscal Year 2024 quickly approaches, we are pleased to announce these virtual training courses, which are also available on OIP’s Eventbrite page:
