  • Read Chapter 5
  • Answer the following questions:

 

  1. Pick a local (NYC) (rather than state or federal) government.

 

1a. Find their FOIL procedure (Freedom of Information Law).

 

  1. What department or employee is responsible for carrying out the request?

 

  1. Can the form be downloaded on the agency’s website? If not, what is the procedure?

 

  1. Can the form be submitted electronically via email, if not, state why not and mention the challenge here- remember this is about transparency in government and there are still agencies that have not provided this important feature to the public which in effect creates barriers to information.

 

  1. Once the form is submitted how is the form sent to the relevant department from which you’ve requested information- if they’re not specific about this I want you to call the agency to clarify- how much time is required for the department to fulfill your request? Under what conditions do the time frames need to be extended?

 

  1. Is the form specific about providing you with guidance for finding the information you need?

 

  1. Does the procedure or policy have a fee? How is the fee structured is there a fee per page? For oversized documents?

 

  1. Scientific management is about process and quality improvements to find that one best way of delivering a product or service. Do you see scientific management playing here? Why/why not? Explain where do you see issues or problems with this procedural?
