Mandatory Declassification Review ("MDR") vs FOIA Addresses
1 answer from JPat Brown.
Most agencies list a different address for submission of a Mandatory Declassification Review (“MDR”) request versus a FOIA request. I’d like to use MuckRock to submit both MDR and FOIA requests for my research. Is there any way you could add a feature to your “Create a Request” process that would a) allow me to designate the request as either MDR or FOIA (i.e., like a drop-down-box or radio button); and, b) confirm you’ll send the request to the appropriate address at the respective government agency?
David, hello! Thanks for reaching out - we’ve added this to our “features to implement” list. In the meantime, simply editing the default language in drafts to read “This is a mandatory declassification review” is a temporary fix. Best, J.Pat
