Arlington, VA (Vocus) July 30, 2010
Privasoft, a world leader in specialized software for managing requests in response to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is pleased to feature the interview of Privasoft CTO, Stephen Davis by Dennis Michael of SKY Radio. In the interview, Davis discusses what government is doing to address increased activity under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and explains how technological advances are necessary to keep up with the increasing demand for publically-held documents.
“Early last year, the Obama administration issued a directive on transparency and open government…[and] called on agencies in the government to provide information to the American public … to make it readily available..to encourage interaction with the public and to use technology to do that” explains Davis of the expansion of the FOIA. He goes on to discuss how these directives affect FOIA professionals, most specifically by increasing the number of FOIA requests, in which government documents must be reviewed and disclosed by FOIA personnel.
Davis indicates that automated processing methods for handling FOIA requests allow for faster access to information for the public, which result from increased efficiency in FOIA offices. He explains that with Privasoft’s AccessPro Suite, FOIA offices can become better equipped to process FOIA requests quickly and generate performance data necessary for operational oversight and improvement in the overall results of their units.
As CTO, Davis is Chief Architect of the AccessPro Suite, Privasoft’s software solution for automating the FOIA process. Including electronic redaction, case tracking and a public portal, more FOIA teams use Privasoft software to manage their operation than any other FOIA solution provider in the world.
