In Praise of EPA’s FOIA Office
A serious government watchdog recognizes superior service from federal agencies, not just causes for complaint.Which is why Winston is pleased to pay tribute to EPA’s Freedom of Information Act office.

In response to a written request from the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness, an EPA FOIA Officer called CRE the day the letter was received to clarify certain technical issues. The agency official then prepared and sent the initial response that very same day.

The EPA FOIA Officer is representative of the many hard working career civil service professionals who rarely receive the recognition and appreciation they have earned. Watchdog Watch, on behalf of CRE, would like to take this opportunity to thank Larry Gottesman and all other dedicated EPA FOIA professionals.
