Transparency in government operations is a priority of this Administration and this Department.

– Attorney General’s FOIA Guidelines (March 2022)

Open government is built on transparency, participation, and collaboration, as described in the Open Government Directive issued by the Office of Management and Budget in 2009 (M-10-06).  Through implementation of M-10-06, the Freedom of Information Act, the Foundations for Evidence-Based Policymaking Act of 2018, and other laws and policies governing how information is made available to the public, the Department works to create an effective government through public awareness and participation.
