Guidance on Submitting Backlog Reduction Goals for Fiscal Years 2008, 2009, and 2010: “As part of the June 1, 2007 report to the President on agency progress under Executive Order 13,392, “Improving Agency Disclosure of Information,” the Attorney General recommended that any agency that has a FOIA request or administrative appeal pending beyond the statutory time period (i.e., a backlog) at the end of Fiscal Year 2007, should establish backlog reduction goals for the next three fiscal years. These goals are required to be posted on each agency’s FOIA web site by November 1, 2007.”
