CREW and other Government Transparency Advocates Call on OPM to Revise FOIA Personnel Practices

WASHINGTON - Today, CREW joined other government transparency advocates in
calling on the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to revise its
report on personnel practices for government employees who administer
the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). OPM’s existing report fails to
fulfill Congress’ intentions for the FOIA and the expectations of those
who regularly file FOIA requests.

To support the Obama administration’s renewed commitment to
transparency and openness, OPM must reexamine its FOIA personnel
policies.
