FOIA News (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

Yesterday, July 2, 2015, the Office of Information Policy released updated guidance that outlines a series of procedures that agencies should use when inquiring whether a requester remains interested in the continued processing of his or her request. 

Note that in October 2014, fourteen "requester community" organizations requested that the Office of Government Information Services investigate the government's use of still-interested letters.
