FIA-14-0017 - In the Matter of Donna Deedy

On March 24, 2014, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued a decision denying an appeal (Appeal) from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) determination issued by the Department of Energy’s of Health, Safety and Security (HSS).  The Appellant appealed HSS’s determination as it failed to provide a “list of all Government-owned, contractor-operator facilities where DOE exercises statutory authority to enforce occupational safety and health rules.”  HSS explained it does not maintain a list of the nuclear and non-nuclear facilities that DOE oversees, and that it specifically does not have a list of the Government-owned, contractor-operated facilities where DOE exercises statutory authority to enforce occupational safety and health rules.  Nonetheless, HSS provided the Appellant with public sources where the Appellant may find the requested information.  Therefore, the OHA denied the Appeal.
