State Dept. Failing to Respond to Records Requests, Report Finds

State Dept. Failing to Respond to Records Requests, Report FindsThe State Department is failing to respond in a timely and accurate manner to requests for public records filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), an internal watchdog investigation released today concludes. The report, issued by the State Department’s Office of Inspector General, recommends the State Department hire and dedicate more staff for the purpose of producing records, to which the State Department says it agrees. “While the volume of State Freedom of Information Act requests has tripled since 2008, our resources to respond have not kept pace,” State Department John Kirby said in a statement to ABC News.
