FOIA Council

The FOIA Council is chaired by the Deputy Chief FOIA Officer and is comprised of one designated FOIA Officer representative from each bureau and operating unit. The Executive Council members include the Chief FOIA Officer, the Chief Information Officer, and the Assistant General Counsel for Litigation, Employment, and Oversight from the Office of General Counsel.

The FOIA is a cornerstone of Open Government’s transparency pillar.  The FOIA Council ensures the Department’s effective administration of the FOIA by developing and implementing FOIA policy and guidance and, by promoting increased transparency, FOIA training, best business practices, better collaboration across the Department, and increased outreach and dialogue with the requester community.
