Internal DOJ FOIA Report: Unredacted Responses Down, Exemptions Up

Most. Transparent.


An annual Justice Department Office of Information Policy report on agency Freedom of Information Act request processing shows mixed results when it comes to records releases.

The report (.pdf), released this week, says the number of governmentwide backlogged requests dropped by 11,700 during the last fiscal year compared to the year before – but is still more than the 69,526 backlogged requests reported during fiscal 2010.
