§ 2411.4 Information policy.

(1) It is the policy of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and IG to make available for public inspection and copying (unless they are published and copies are offered for sale):
(i) Final decisions and orders of the Authority and administrative rulings of the General Counsel; and procedural determinations, final decisions and orders of the Panel; and factfinding and arbitration reports; and reports and executive summaries of the IG;
(ii) Statements of policy and interpretations which have been adopted by the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG and are not published in the Federal Register;
(iii) Administrative staff manuals and instructions to staff that affect a member of the public (except those establishing internal operating rules, guidelines, and procedures for the investigation, trial, and settlement of cases);
(iv) Copies of all records, regardless of form or format, which have been released to any person under 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(3) and which, because of the nature of their subject matter, the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG determines have become or are likely to become the subject of subsequent requests for substantially the same records; and
(v) A general index of the records referred to in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) through (iv) of this section.
(2) It is the policy of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and the IG to make promptly available for public inspection and copying, upon request by any person, other records where the request reasonably describes such records and otherwise conforms to the procedures of this part.
(b) Records availability.
(1) Any person may examine and copy items in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) through (iv) of this section, at each regional office of the Authority and at the offices of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and the IG, respectively, in Washington, DC, under conditions prescribed by the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and the IG, respectively, and at reasonable times during normal working hours so long as it does not interfere with the efficient operations of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and the IG. To the extent required to prevent a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, identifying details may be deleted and, in each case, the justification for the deletion shall be fully explained in writing. On the released portion of the record, the amount of information deleted, and the exemption under which the deletion is made, shall be indicated unless an interest protected by the exemption would be harmed.
(2) All records covered by this section are available through the Internet/World Wide-Web site ( http://www.flra.gov/foia/reading_room.html ).

A listing of these offices, including appropriate information for requesting the use of the terminal, is provided at http://www.flra.gov/foia/contacts.html.
(c) The Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel and the IG shall maintain and make available for public inspection and copying the current indexes and supplements to the records which are required by 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)and, as appropriate, a record of the final votes of each member of the Authority and of the Panel in every agency proceeding. Any person may examine and copy such document or record of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG at the offices of either the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG, as appropriate, in Washington, DC, under conditions prescribed by the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG at reasonable times during normal working hours so long as it does not interfere with the efficient operations of either the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG.
(d) All agency records, except those exempt from mandatory disclosure by one or more provisions of 5 U.S.C. 552(b), will be made promptly available to any person submitting a written request in accordance with the procedures of this part.
(e)
(1) The formal documents constituting the record in a case or proceeding are matters of official record and, until destroyed pursuant to applicable statutory authority, are available to the public for inspection and copying at the appropriate regional office of the Authority, or the offices of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel or the IG in Washington, DC, as appropriate, under conditions prescribed by the Authority, the General Counsel or the Panel at reasonable times during normal working hours so long as it does not interfere with the efficient operations of the Authority, the General Counsel, the Panel, or the IG.
