The FEDSpace Podcast 

The Show That Helps You Understand Federal Data Privacy and Governance

How can agencies streamline and respond more quickly to FOIA requests? “First and foremost, I think it’s important for all agencies to have a really good idea around understanding their data,” says Ray Azarm, Vice President, Enterprise Practice at Armedia during this week’s episode of the FEDSpace Podcast.

FOIA, or the Freedom of Information Act, took effect just over 50 years ago. As technology and citizen expectations have changed over the years, so too has the law itself, making it difficult for public entities to find the best way to respond to FOIA requests. With years of experience helping agencies implement FOIA solutions, Ray offers his advice and best practices on the podcast.
