The FOIA requires each federal agency to submit an Annual Report to the Attorney General each year. These reports contain detailed statistics on the numbers of requests received and processed by each agency, the time taken to respond, and the outcome of each request, as well as many other vital statistics regarding the administration of the FOIA at federal departments and agencies.

These reports contain details of FOIA administration at each agency, as well as the steps taken to implement the Attorney General's FOIA Guidelines during each reporting year.
