The vast majority of federal agencies have not updated their Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulations despite pledges by the Obama administration to be the most transparent in history, the National Security Archive reported Tuesday.
According to the National Security Archive’s audit, 62 of 99 government agencies have not updated their FOIA regulations since Attorney General Eric Holder directed them in a March 2009 FOIA memorandum to remove “unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles” to obtaining public records and err on the side of transparency.
Additionally, 56 agencies have not updated their FOIA regulations since the passage of the OPEN Government Act of 2007, which mandated agencies retool their FOIA offices, including fee structures and reporting.
