HUD automates records management to better handle FOIA requests

From Government Computer News:

The Housing and Urban Development Department has automated its case records management to improve compliance with the requirements of theFreedom of Information Act (FOIA).

The new centralized, scalable hosted solution enables HUD officials to quickly access millions of documents, respond significantly faster to FOIA requests and collaborate with other agencies regarding such requests. More than 3 million physical documents are in the new system, freeing up 1,500 square feet of office and storage space.
