Follow-up Evaluation of NASA's Implementation of Executive Order 13526, Classified National Security Information, NASA OIG

"Although NASA has taken steps to implement our prior recommendations, we continued to identify inconsistencies in the Agency's application of CNSI policies and procedures that led to improper marking of classified documents. This occurred because of insufficient identification and training of classifiers. Further, implementation of the Agency's self-inspection program was not fully effective because NASA Centers did not consistently review documents to verify the accuracy of classified markings. Improved identification and training of classification officials and effective self-inspections would help ensure classified information at NASA is managed in accordance with Federal requirements."

NASA Open Government 2016 Plan, NASA CIO

Keith's 15 Sept note: With regard to the Open NASA thing at FOIA this report says "NASA's FOIA program provides access to agency documents through a citizen-centered service. NASA is committed to providing the public with excellent customer service as well as access to disclosable agency documents in accordance with all appropriate laws and regulations. Each Plan listed improvements, consolidations, and revised processes. Each of these commitments was met, and the effort to provide excellence continues."

With regard to the "excellent customer service" that the NASA CIO is so excited about, if you go to you get:

"Not Found The requested URL /foia was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 443"

If you go to NASA's actual FOIA page and click on "Submit a FOIA Request
+ View Form"
- it also links to which leads you to the same dead link.

So much for enhanced customer service by the NASA CIO.

Keith's 18 Sept note: It took NASA 3 days to fix this problem once it was highlighted here. Just sayin'
