Refresher Training Session for 2010 Agency Annual FOIA Reports

September 23, 2010
On October 12, 2010, OIP will host a refresher training session to go over the reporting requirements for agency Annual FOIA Reports. For the Fiscal Year 2010 Annual FOIA Reports, OIP will be providing agencies with an Excel tool to be used in creating the report.  This tool has many features to assist agencies in compiling their data, including built-in math checks.  The tool will also generate the Annual FOIA Report in an open format, which is required by the Open Government Directive.  OIP anticipates sending agencies the tool prior to the training.  Agencies should also publish their 2010 Report in the PDF or similar human-readable format traditionally used for publishing Annual FOIA Reports. Agency Annual FOIA Reports in both their open and human-readable formats should be submitted to OIP electronically at DOJ.OIP.FOIA@usdoj.gov no later than December 6, 2010, in order to allow sufficient time for OIP to review them prior to posting. The Refresher Training Session will cover the required elements for all sections of the Annual FOIA Report as well as discuss the Excel tool.  The details for this event are: Refresher Training Session for 2010 Agency Annual FOIA Reports October 12, 2010 National Housing Center 1201 15th Street (entrance on 15th and M Street) 10:00 am - noon Questions regarding the Training Session may be directed to OIP’s Training Officer, Bertina Adams Cleveland, at (202) 514-3642.
