Each year, government agencies respond to thousands of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Open Records Act (ORA) requests with limited dedicated staff and short deadlines.

Elevate handles end-to-end response processing or singular tasks to supplement the work of your team.

Our teams manage:

Intake: Calendar the response, interpret and clarify the request, and negotiate terms
Preparation: Review documents to determine whether exemptions apply; redact, and assert exemptions as needed
Production: Deliver responsive documents
