What is a FOIA Officer?

A FOIA Officer is a person appointed by the "public body." The FOIA officer's responsibility is to receive FOIA requests from the public and to send responses in compliance with FOIA. FOIA requires that each public body appoint one or more FOIA officers who must complete an electronic training developed by the Attorney General's PAC. Training must be completed annually. The Attorney General's office has made the electronic training available to all FOIA officers.
