Established in 2007, OGIS is the US Government's Freedom of Information ombudsman. OGIS is responsible for resolving FOI disputes between Federal agencies and requesters, answering questions, tracking suggestions and providing information to both the public and government. Congress has charged OGIS with reviewing FOI policies, procedures and compliance by Federal agencies.
Miriam Nisbet's current interests are the US experience with Open Government, how the Freedom of Information laws fit into that, the critical role of records management, and the challenges of measuring successes in moving towards Open Government.
