Freedom of Information Act
Document Number: 2016-30475
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-12-22
Agency: National Council on Disability, Agencies and Commissions
The National Council on Disability (NCD) issues a final rule amending its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) regulations to integrate required statutory mandates enacted by the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016 (The Improvement Act). These changes include a longer timeframe to file an appeal for administrative appeals and additional resources for dispute resolution services. Additionally, NCD issues this final rule so as to include comments which were submitted for NCD's existing FOIA regulations. But due to issues beyond NCD control, NCD did not receive the comments until after publication of the final rule.
