FOIA Portal Integration Goes Live at the Department of Education


FOIAXpress Fully Interoperable with National FOIA Portal per DOJ Guidelines

Gaithersburg, MD – July 19, 2019 – The U.S. Department of Education, a longtime FOIAXpress customer, has enabled the National FOIA Portal API with their FOIAXpress Public Access Link (PAL). With PAL, public information requests made to the Department of Education through the National Portal will seamlessly be received by the Department’s FOIAXpress system for processing.

Two additional agencies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs, are expected to follow suit. The string of integrations follows protocol set forth by the Department of Justice earlier this year.

With PAL, agencies can offer a personalized, secure web portal for public FOIA requests. Beyond receiving and delivering records, PAL enables agencies to communicate with requesters, collect fees, and provide access to released documents in a public reading room in accordance with agency proactive disclosure guideline.
