On May 16, 2011, GSA published a Notice to clarify whether information contractors input into the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (“FAPIIS”) is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”). Presumably this Notice was prompted by a recent flood of FOIA requests. In essence, the Notice provides that Information posted on or after April 15, 2011 will be available to the public and not exempt from disclosure. But any information entered before April 15, 2011, is exempt from disclosure under b(4).
