WHAT IS THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT?
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), passed by Congress in 1966, holds the United States and its federal government and agencies more accountable in providing records to the public. By design, FOIA (often pronounced FOY – YUH) outlines and facilitates the process of requesting government records and tells Federal agencies what is or isn’t exempt. FOIA requires Federal agencies to provide requesters the records, unless they are exempt. Federal agencies aren’t required to organize data for requesters, rather, they must provide the records, then it’s up to the requesters to analyze the records for information and data they seek.

I would not have been able to make the headway that I have with my FOIA case without the assistance of Pete Sorenson and his team. The firm has assisted me in making distinct and important academic contributions to the literature on resilience.
