CREW: Department of Education: Regarding Communications for Robert Shireman

On April 8, 2011, CREW filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the U.S. Department of Education seeking all emails between former Deputy Undersecretary Robert Shireman and any Education official from June 2010, the date of Mr. Shireman’s departure from the agency, to the present. Although Education officials stated Mr. Shireman would stay on in an advisory capacity after his departure, Education has orally advised CREW, in response to another FOIA request, it has no record of any contract between Education and Mr. Shireman. With this latest FOIA request CREW seeks to learn whether Mr. Shireman has continued to advise Education without compensation and on what subjects.
