The 1996 amendments to FOIA mandate publicly accessible "electronic reading rooms" with agency FOIA response materials and other information routinely available to the public. Under subsection (a)(2) of FOIA, Federal agencies must make four distinct categories of records affirmatively available:
5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(A) Records
Final opinions and orders made in the adjudication of cases that may be cited, used, or relied upon as precedents in future adjudications.
TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) Office of the General Counsel Adjudications
5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(B) Records
Statements of policy and interpretations that have been adopted by the agency and are not published in the Federal Register.
5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(C) Records
Administrative staff manuals and instructions, or portions thereof, that establish Department of Defense (DoD) policy or interpretations of policy that affect the public.
5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(D) Records
