FOIA Reports

The Attorney General’s FOIA Guidelines require the Chief FOIA Officer to submit a report to the Attorney General containing a detailed description of the steps taken by the agency to improve FOIA compliance and transparency. These reports contain details of FOIA administration at NLRB and the steps taken by the NLRB to implement the Attorney General's FOIA Guidelines during each reporting year.

The FOIA requires each federal agency to submit an Annual Report to the Attorney General each year. These reports contain detailed statistics on the numbers of requests received and processed by each agency, the time taken to respond, and the outcome of each request and other vital statistics regarding the administration of the FOIA at federal agencies.

  • the number of requests processed during the quarter,
  • the number of requests in an agency’s backlog at the end of the quarter, and
  • the progress being made to close the agency’s ten overall oldest pending FOIA requests.
