Significant Increase in FOIA Requests

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 5, 2003

From a recent Dept. of Justice FOIA Post:

  • “The total number of Freedom of Information Act/Privacy Act access requests received by all federal departments and agencies during Fiscal Year 2002 was 2,402,938. This is 156,726 more than the number of requests received during Fiscal Year 2001, an increase of nearly 7%, and it marks the third consecutive year in which the two-million-request level has been exceeded.”
