NARA's EFOIA Proposed Rule May Spell Problems for Submitters of Confidential, Financial Information : LUSENET : Federal Information and Records Managers Council : One Thread

Hello to all,

NARA issued its EFOIA regulation as a Proposed Rule on August 23, 2000. It is in the Federal Register at 65FR51270. It's probabaly on the NARA website. Agency Records Officers and FOIA Officers should have their agencies' comment on the fact that this rule states in Section 1250.82 that NARA will release confidential, financial information, that is less than 10 years old after notifying the submitter of the information. I think this means that they will release all confidential, financial info that is 10 years old or older. This may be unacceptable to many submitters and to many Federal agencies. The comment period for this NARA regulation ends on 10/23/2000.

The opinions expressed are my own and not those of my employer.
