Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

CDC Activities and Initiatives Supporting the COVID-19 Response and the President’s Plan for Opening America U p Again

Journalists reported in May that CDC had created a 60 page + document on reopening for public distribution but that some administration appointees had blocked its release and issued instead a 17 page document of information they already published. A librarian searched CDC’s website and couldn’t find and therefore initiated a FOIA request.

The 17 page version the administration released is available at Stanford’s Institutional Repository.

Recently, the CDC/ATSDR FOIA Officer notified the librarian making a FOIA request that CDC had indeed made the document available at their website and therefore their request was unnecessary.

GPO will make available through the Federal Library Depository Program.
