A New Home for OGIS

The OFR welcomes the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS), a sister agency within the National Archives, to our neighborhood near Capitol Hill. In fact, they moved into space right next door to the OFR. They also have a new web site to go along with their new digs.

OGIS recommends policy changes to improve the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process, offers mediation services to help resolve disputes between requestors and agencies, and acts as ombudsman by responding to the needs of the diverse FOIA community.  The new web site helps requestors and agencies navigate the FOIA process.
