ACTI announces that it has begun submitting Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). ACTI will submit requests for the purpose of gathering more information concerning the hiring process, the previous process, the changes, and the results. ACTI will use the information gathered to research the changes and the results and publish its findings based on the raw data received from the FAA.
Our first FOIA request was submitted Friday, February 10, 2017. We requested a fee waiver for academic and public interest purposes. As of February 17, FAA has not acknowledged our request.
Although ACTIs goal is to obtain the information through the administrative process, ACTI may pursue litigation against FAA for future failures to comply with the Act.
