The National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) has identified a number of areas where the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) process could be improved, as well as areas where OGIS’s role can be made more effective. The policy recommendations, prepared in accordance with Title 5 of United States Code, Section 552 (h)(2)(C), have benefitted from ongoing consultation with agencies as well as feedback from the public.1 OGIS is currently working to implement these recommendations, and looks forward to engaging with Congress in these areas.

May 9, 2011 Comments off

Information Security Oversight Office – 2010 Cost Report
Source: National Archives and Records Association (via Federation of American Scientists)

This report provides information on the cost estimates of the security classification program as required by Executive Order 13526, “Classified National Security Information.” It provides statistics and analysis concerning key components of the system from 41 Executive branch agencies. It also contains cost information with respect to industrial security in the private sector as required by Executive Order 12829, as amended, “National Industrial Security Program.” The cost estimates from the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the National Geospatial- Intelligence Agency, the National Reconnaissance Office, and the National Security Agency, are compiled in a classified addendum to this report that is being transmitted separately.

With the implementation of Executive Order 13526, costs for all areas of security classification increased during FY 2010. Sustaining and increasing investment in classification and security measures is necessary to maintain the classification system and is fundamental to the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration. As ISOO oversees the trends in this system, we will continue to focus on enhancing the policy and guidance directed towards maintaining an efficient and effective classification management program.
