The Impact of NARA’s Email Capstone Policy & Other Recent Initiatives on FOIA Access

Overview

Washington, D.C., of counsel Jason R. Baron was invited to present to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee. His presentation, “The Impact of NARA’s Email Capstone Policy & Other Recent Initiatives on FOIA Access ,” discussed how the transition to a fully electronic record keeping environment will impact access to records under FOIA.

Jason stated that the volume of electronic records that will need to be searched in response to a FOIA request will increase exponentially. Therefore, Jason recommended that federal agencies meet their obligations to produce records by use of e-discovery software and considerable investment in predictive coding techniques that make the review process less burdensome.
