Dear Mr. Williams,
Here is the response from the Office of Government Information Services:
"If FOIA reports from the 1970s through the early 1990s still exist, they would likely be at NARA's Center for
The 1974 amendments to FOIA required that each agency submit an annual report to the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate reporting seven particular items pertaining to FOIA. The amendments also required that the Attorney General submit an annual litigation report and a description of efforts undertaken by the Department of Justice to encourage agency compliance. (See page 1564 https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/STATUTE-88/pdf/STATUTE-88-Pg1561.pdf)
The 1996 amendments to FOIA (the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996) changed the reporting requirements so that agencies submit reports to the Attorney General rather than to Congress.. The E-FOIA amendments also expanded the number of data points required for reporting. (See Sec. 10 Report to Congress https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-104publ231/html/PLAW-104publ231.htm)."
