Electronic Reading Room

The Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996 (E-FOIA) contains a provision which requires agencies to permit the public to inspect and copy records that are likely to become the subject of multiple FOIA requests, provided the records were: (1) created after November 1, 1996; and (2) released under FOIA on or after March 31, 1997. In furtherance of Executive Order #13392, "Improving Agency Disclosure of Information," Paul Chalmers, Deputy General Counsel, has been appointed Chief FOIA Officer for PBGC.

E-FOIA also requires agencies to make copies of records that will be the subject of multiple FOIA requests available electronically, thus avoiding the need to submit a written FOIA request to the PBGC.

Some of these records are available for inspection and copying at the PBGC's Public Reading Room and FOIA Requester Service Center, 1200 K Street NW, Room 11125, Washington, DC 20005-4026, or they can be downloaded from this page.
