Sociology

Your first task is to research the issue of FOIA and the privatization of government. There has been a lot published on this topic since the mid-1990’s. Try to find some examples similar to my EMS agency. Once you have some good reference materials, address the following issues (at a minimum):

1. Should private corporations be subject to FOIA requests if they utilize public funding? What are the arguments for and against this? If yes, to what degree?
2.Should there be differences between privatization of traditional governmental services (law enforcement, the prison system, transportation) and private corporations using public funding for non-traditional services (providing day care to the children of government employees, meals-on-wheels)?
3. Try to find examples of FWAC in private corporations and non-profits that were not subject to FOIA, but may have been prevented by FOIA based investigations.
4. If FOIA/FOIL legislation cannot force private corporations to respond to requests for information, is there anything that could be done by the contracting government agency to mitigate this?
5. If you have any personal experiences with this issue, please feel free to share.
