Three Trends to Watch in FOIA Requests for 2019

Have a look at these new year’s trends in Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and responses. Here’s a clue: Topics in the public consciousness tend to play a major role. As 2019 approaches, watch out the expanded examination of open authorities’ and government organizations’ business lead, ease back reactions to FOIA filings, and developing attention to security and cybersecurity themes when arranging your area of expertise assets to get ready or react to FOIA requests.

Here are the top three trends in Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for 2019. Have a look!

  • Expect increased scrutiny on open authorities’ and government organizations’ business conduct. Beyond the subtleties of Robert Mueller’s headline-dominating investigation, a developing assemblage of case law, including three District Court opinions, have hardened the idea of responsiveness under FOIA. Summers v. Department of Justice Addressed scrutiny of open authorities’ appointment calendars and business correspondence, and how the court defines responsive to search terms. Bagwell v. Department of Justice Examined the different names generally used to allude to the reacting party and illustrated how agencies must be prepared to search based on common parlance, in addition to official nomenclature.Together, the Bagwell and Summers cases have changed the FOIA request standard. Government organizations must lead faultless inquiries and demonstrate that they have endeavored to react.

 

Freedom of Information Act

 

A big thanks to all the latest technological advancements due to which government agencies handle FOIA requests effortlessly. The plus point is that machine learning technology can help government agencies handle FOIA requests. The case of Government Accountability Project v. U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security offer stronger standing for FOIA suits and an expectation of responding in good faith.

  • Residents and offices working in groups with a high volume of FOIA solicitations ought to expect a moderate reaction and excess for FOIA responses to be fulfilled. Between October 2016 and September 2017, the US Department of Interior received an 8,014 FOIA request. The EPA received 11,493 FOIA requests between October 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017, and by assuming the rate of filings remains comparable, government agencies will be stretched to respond effectively and in a timely manner.

Expect that security and cybersecurity issues will progressively be a theme of enthusiasm for natives and associations recording FOIA requests. The rise of privacy regulation and fines for cybersecurity breaches have progressively carried these issues into general social awareness. Precedents incorporate the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, which became effective May 25. In the US, the new California Consumer Privacy Act, A.B. 375, California Senate Bill No. 327, the Ohio Data Protection Act (DPA), and Colorado’s Protections for Consumer Data Privacy Act (PCDPA) exhibit how states are looking at these issues.

As you plan for 2019, it is important to keep in mind the present backlog and strain on government agencies’ legal teams either your department is planning or responding to FOIA requests, your ability to manage the case law precedents in these areas will make a difference in legal operations.
