Treasury moves FOIA to the cloud

The Treasury Department is taking a cloud-based approach to the Freedom of Information Act. The GoFOIA system includes three new services to make the submission and tracking of FOIA requests electronic. Members of the public can now submit their requests through a guided web portal. Agency personnel can then log in and view those requests through a dashboard format to chart the volume of pending FOIA filings. It also includes a new electronic document management system so Treasury employees can collaborate on putting together their responses to requests.
