EPIC, Coalition Urge Investigation of Closure of Open Government Requests

EPIC and 13 other transparency organizations have asked the Office of Government Information Services to launch an investigation of impermissible closures of FOIA requests. Several federal agencies have notified FOIA requesters that unprocessed requests will simply be closed by the agency if there is no further communication. There is nothing in the FOIA law or agency regulations that allow for this practice. EPIC and the coalition have asked the FOIA ombudsman to investigate and to advise agencies to end the practice. For more information see: FOIA.ROCKS and EPIC: Open Government.
