The Treasury Department won the not-exactly-coveted Rosemary Award for the worst Freedom of Information Act performance by a federal agency. The National Security Archive bestowed the award to Treasury for its practice of delaying a response to FOIA requests, then asking requesters months or years later if they are still interested. The Archive said it had 74 such letters to 42 requests in the past seven years. (3/19/08)
