On September 7th, the Office of Information Policy (OIP) released an updated version of its Guidance for Agency Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Regulations, along with an updated FOIA Regulation Template. These resources were first issued in March 2016. OIP has updated them to take into account changes made to the FOIA by the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016 and by recent court decisions. As described in OIP’s guidance, while many of the FOIA’s requirements are contained directly in the statute and do not need implementing regulations, there are areas where the FOIA specifically requires each agency to publish regulations and still other areas where regulations are permitted.
The mission of the Office of Information Policy (OIP) is to provide legal and policy advice to all agencies on administration of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). OIP is responsible for encouraging agency compliance with the law and for overseeing agency implementation of it.
