About FOIAengine

FOIAengine is a new competitive intelligence database that tracks U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in as close to real-time as their availability allows.

The Power to Know

FOIA requests are predictive, providing signals of upcoming litigation, transactions, stock and market movements, news stories, short-seller initiatives, and other legal and corporate developments.

FOIAengine gives you the power to know about:

  • Investors seeking information about governmental actions affecting stock prices.
  • Reporters planning to write critical stories about your company or industry.
  • Competitors using FOIA to seek damaging information about you.
  • Competitor vulnerabilities that could improve your place in the market.
  • Law firms planning to launch a lawsuit.
  • Political organizations researching and planning campaign tactics.
  • Non-profits pursuing a more transparent and open government.

Learn the Details of FOIA Requests That Affect You

FOIAengine gives you the power to learn who is watching you, and to watch your competitors and industry.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of requests are made to federal departments, agencies, and departmental components seeking the release of specific government documents. Agencies are required to provide these documents to the requester unless the request falls under one of several exemptions.

Agency responses can take months. But long before that, FOIAengine can tell you important details about the request itself, including the name and organization of the requester, the date of the request, and the information being requested. Knowing these facts can provide new opportunities or warn about coming danger.
