FOIAonline Still Broken Six Months After Disastrous Redesign: FRINFORMSUM 12/6/2018 (Unredacted)

Unredacted: FOIAonline Still Broken Six Months After Disastrous Redesign: FRINFORMSUM 12/6/2018. “Six months ago the would-be government-wide FOIA portal, FOIAonline, was redesigned and the site lost much of its functionality as a result. (The Reporters Committee’s Adam Marshall has a good run-down of all the things wrong with the site here.) In July FOIAonline posted a notice on its homepage saying the setback would only be short-term, claiming that ‘Much of the information from the previous version of FOIAonline is not yet in 3.0. This process is expected to take several weeks to complete. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work through the most recent cases to the oldest.’ Several weeks turned into six months and there are still no updates about when we can expect the website, which the Environmental Protection Agency provides the IT for, to return to its previous usability.”
