Freedom of Information: FOIA portal opens to public

Welcome to FOIAonline
October 1, 2012 - A small collection of agencies opened Oct. 1 to the public a portal for the processing of Freedom of Information Act requests.

The portal, which government officials say cost $1.3 million to develop, was spearheaded by the Environmental Protection Agency and is based on code from the portal, which the EPA also manages.

Agencies accepting FOIA requests through the portal today are the EPA, the Commerce Department (excepting, for now, the Patent and Trademark Office), the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Federal Labor Relations Authority, and portions of the National Archives and Records Administration. read more>>>
