As Connecticut works to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff of the Freedom of Information Commission has begun returning to the Commission’s office on a limited basis.  However, the building continues to be closed to the general public.  During this time of reopening, a limited number of staff will work at the Commission’s office while others will continue to telework.   The Commission resumed its schedule of Regular Meetings on Wednesday, June 10, 2020.  Commission meetings will be conducted via telephone and teleconference until such time as restrictions allow a public meeting to be held at the Commission's offices.  Instructions for real-time public access to the Commission’s meetings will be published and included with each meeting agenda.   Additionally, a recording of each meeting will be posted on the Commission’s website.  Contested case hearings are being conducted remotely by telephone and videoconference. The Commission continues to accept appeals and engage in its ombudsman program. FOIC New Address Effective June 1, 2021 165 Capitol Ave, suite 1100, Hartford, CT 06106

ATTENTION: As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, contested case hearings are currently being conducted telephonically and therefore not likely to be impacted by inclement weather.  Parties should assume their hearing will take place as scheduled unless specifically notified by the Commission of a schedule change.
