Boosting FOIA Compliance with TextMyGov

What is FOIA?

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is fundamental to US democracy. It grants the public the right to request access to records from federal agencies, ensuring transparency about government activities. Unless the information falls under the nine exemptions—covering national security, personal privacy, and law enforcement interests—federal agencies are required to disclose any information requested. FOIA also mandates federal agencies to make certain information, including frequently requested records, available to the public online.

What should you know?

Complying with FOIA requests can be a complex process for municipality employees. It often involves obtaining a court order or subpoena to produce communication documents according to federal law, including text message records from the party's cell phone providers. While this process can be lengthy and challenging, it offers a streamlined solution for ensuring transparency and accountability.

TextMyGov is the Solution

Whenever a government agency gathers information or communicates with the public, it must maintain a record of potential FOIA requests. TextMyGov ensures FOIA compliance by maintaining a reliable database that logs all the municipality's text conversations and other data. You can access and report this information when you'd like.
