New Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Software Launched By EEOC

On February 1, 2021, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) launched a new software system to receive and process Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and objections.  FOIA allows individuals the right to request access to federal government records.

Individuals looking to make FOIA requests can now initiate the requests using the new software system.  Any requests submitted prior to February 1 will be able to access the status of their requests via the old Public Access Link until March 12, 2021 but will then need to access all requests using the new software system.

While the new software system will make it easier to submit FOIA requests and track the status of such requests, the EEOC will still accept FOIA requests and objections via mail, email, and fax.  Once requests are received via mail, email, or fax, the EEOC will enter the requests into the new software system for processing and monitoring.

The EEOC FOIA software system can be accessed here.
