Here in Tennessee, Gov. Bill Haslam has launched "Transparent Tennessee," a project aimed at putting information about government spending on the Internet. We hope there's more where that came from, but the governor, too, has a mixed record on open government.
Since I started working here near the end of 2011, I had no idea what we had asked for or why we wanted it. Barnes agreed to send me the request.
It's not an abstract concept. The Tennessean is currently engaged in a fight for records in a court case involving a rape in a Vanderbilt University dormitory, one that could tell our readers a lot about the university, local law enforcement and how well officials Lv Belt Price
So I called Theo Emery, the former staffer who had made the original request. He left The Tennessean in 2009. He remembered what he had been asking for and dug up a file about it an investigative reporter's onetime obsession, its embers still smoldering.
Not long after that first call from Barnes, another State Department official, a man named Joseph Cuadrado, called to further sort out what we had asked for. He seemed genuinely disturbed that the response had taken so long and vowed to deliver what we needed though I still didn't know whether I needed it or not.
said the identification number on the request didn't match the program we had named.
Emery couldn't remember if the government had met the requirement of the federal Freedom of Information Act to respond within 15 days of receiving the request. The law requires a response but doesn't mandate that the records must be provided in that time frame. In other words, someone from the agency can say "We got your request" without filling it right away. In this case we're not even sure that happened.

It's possible that the Hermes Belt Offer request got lost somehow, but evidence suggests that long delays aren't rare. I hear about too many other federal FOIA requests filled long after the stories connected to them were published, or not at all.

We don't want the records to exploit someone's tragedy; we'd like to help prevent the next one.
Ah, those were heady days.
At The Tennessean, we're still waiting for an answer from the National Archives and Records Administration for a story that ran last August. That request was submitted more than a year ago.
"It took you six years to figure that out?" I asked.

According to a recent report in ProPublica, Obama gets mixed reviews on his pledge from open government advocates. They praise him for setting up transparency websites where government contracts can be reviewed. Attorney General Eric Holder ordered them to do so.

"Those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account," someone once said, "to spend wisely, reform bad habits and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust Lv Belts Replica
It has been more than five years since President Barack Obama first took the oath of office as president. In one of his first acts as president, he put out a memorandum saying his administration "is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government."
"We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation and collaboration," he wrote. "Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in government."
