'Extreme' review process adding to FOIA backlog
Thursday - 7/7/2011, 4:38pm EDT
The required response time is 20 days.
Nate Jones is the Freedom of Information Act Coordinator at the National Security Archive. His group complied a survey of the 10 Oldest FOIA Requests. And he says the backlog isn't going away anytime soon.
In the FOIA request referral process at agencies, requests may have to be processed at several different agencies and go through many layers of review.
"It's not uncommon for documents to get stuck at a desk at one agency or lost in the mail," Jones said.
