EPIC has submitted comments recommending changes to Circular A-130, the government policy for managing federal information resources. Building on prior comments supporting increased access to public court records, EPIC urged federal agencies to make legislation, statutes, rules, regulations, and other relevant court documents available to the public on agency websites. EPIC also recommended that the federal government refrain from tracking website visitors. EPIC has previously argued against government tracking of people seeking access to public information, and pushed for increased privacy protections on government platforms. EPIC's 2009 Freedom of Information Act request revealed that government contractors providing social media services lacked privacy protections.
