FOIAXpress User Conference & Technology Summit 2016

Blog: eCase Case Management Blog

This year, AINS marked the 11th annual FOIA User Conference & Technology Summit. We celebrated our 2016 event with the theme “Changing Landscape: Reshaping Citizen Engagement through Technology.” More than 300 FOIA professionals from across the federal government registered for the event. The insightful speaking sessions offered a wide range of perspectives on the FOIA process as they were hosted by FOIA consultants, federal employees, and AINS technology experts. Sessions ranged from the general to more issue-specific; touching on the impact of new FOIA laws, how to maximize fee and tolling efficiency, and tips and tricks on how to improve agency use of FOIAXpress.


Wayne R. Jewell Award winners from the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) celebrate their achievement.AINS works with many wonderful agencies and FOIA departments from across the Federal Government. Every year at our annual conference, we pause to acknowledge one customer who has displayed an extraordinary working relationship with AINS as well as superb FOIA processing performance. This year, we recognized the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Freedom of Information Act Office with the Wayne R. Jewell Customer Appreciation Award. In the past, AINS has selected a single individual to receive this award, but HUD’s hard work as a united office really made an impression. HUD has been a FOIAXpress customer for more than 10 years and also utilizes AINS’ eCase case management platform to manage agency processes. We look forward to our continued partnership with HUD as well as their continued success within their FOIA office.
