Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The [USA] National Archives announced effective October 1, they are joining other government agencies --Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Commerce--with a new online Freedom of Information Act [FOIA] online system.  Go to: http://FOIAonline.Regulations.gov

It offers the public one place to submit FOIA requests, track their progress, communicate with the processing agency, search other requests, access previously released responsive documents and file appeals with participating agencies. While you can send requests to the participating agencies now, the data available in the system are initially minimal and variable by agency. The partner agencies will continue to enhance the system and they welcome other agencies’ participation.  To read the National Archives press release go to:
