Chief FOIA Officer

Executive Order 13392 supplemented FOIA by reiterating the requirement for agencies to process requests in a courteous and expeditious manner.  In addition, it required agencies to appoint a chief FOIA officer.  The Open Government Act of 2007 codified this requirement and expanded on the responsibilities of the chief FOIA officer to include the following: have agency-wide responsibility for efficient and appropriate compliance with FOIA; monitor FOIA implementation throughout the agency; recommend to the head of the agency any necessary adjustments in practices, personnel, policies or funding.
