As agencies are working through the final quarter of the fiscal year, OIP will continue its Best Practices Workshop Series this summer with a discussion on successful backlog reduction strategies.  This session will be held at 2:00pm on August 21, 2018 at the Department of Justice’s Conference Center (145 N Street, NE)

OIP launched the Best Practices Workshop series in 2014 as a way to share and leverage successes in FOIA administration across the government.  Each workshop in the series focuses on a specific topical area and includes a panel of representatives who share their success stories and strategies.  The series continues to be an opportunity for professionals at every level of the FOIA process to learn from one another and to leverage the successes of other agencies for their own organizations.

The workshop on August 21 is open to all agency FOIA professionals and interested personnel. Registration is required for attendance and you will need a picture ID to enter the building.  Government employees may register for the event through Eventbrite.
