FOIA News: Office of Special Counsel partially updates FOIA regs

FOIA News (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

The Office of Special Counsel has finalized FOIA regulations that update and clarify its procedures for the submission of requests and appeals, according to a Federal Register notice to be published on Monday, October 24, 2016.  The agency issued its proposed regulations in May 2016, and therefore they do not reflect the updates mandated by the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016.
