DHS Announces Implementation of Online FOIA Request System
On March 12, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced its implementation of a consolidated, electronic web-based form that will now allow Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requesters to submit requests online. The submission form, which can be found here, offers users detailed instructions on how to submit a FOIA request and to which DHS department it should be directed. A link enabling requesters to check the status of submitted requests and verify estimated decision dates has also been introduced, and can be found here.
