Three federal agencies didn’t bother to submit mandatory reports to the Department of Justice on their compliance with the federal Freedom of Information Act in 2014.


The Departments of Education, Homeland Security and Treasury each earned “F” grades on Cause of Action’s FOIA Report Card as a result of their failure to comply with the law’s reporting requirement. The reports were due Dec. 15, 2014, and have been required on an annual basis since 2008.


Cause of Action is a Washington-based nonprofit that focuses on litigation on behalf of greater transparency and accountability in government. The group’s FOIA report card was made public Monday as part of Sunshine Week, an annual series of events and projects hosted by news groups and nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting open government.
