The results of Maine’s 2006 FOI Audit
Report on Public Records Audit – Conducted November 19, 2002
The results of the FOI Follow-up audit conducted in May 2006 are available as an Excel spreadsheet. If you have Excel on your computer but are unfamiliar with how to use it, read this basic tutorial. The MFOIC Audit Report, is in Microsoft Word format.
In reviewing the data in the spreadsheets, and in particular where there appears to be a denial of access to public information, please pay careful attention to the reasons listed for denial. These distinctions of denial, as opposed to a strictly black-and-white perspective, are discussed more fully in the report.
