Dedicated Teams, Efficient Solutions
Connecting FOIA process expertise with technology innovation
Across all levels of government, agencies are being asked to do more with less, while demand from citizens for greater transparency and access continues to grow. Many agencies are at their breaking point as the need to provide timely and accurate responses in accordance with Federal and agency guidelines intersects with calls for better service delivery. With limited resources, growing workload, and regulatory compliance mandates, how can government agencies and institutions keep pace?
For more than 15 years, AINS has been helping government agencies build next-generation FOIA programs—connecting skilled professionals and FOIA process expertise with on-going technology innovation. From request processing and document reviews to backlog reduction strategies, AINS has assisted agencies, large and small, when they needed it most.
