How to Make a FOIA Request

How to Make a FOIA Request

All FOIA requests must be in writing and should include the following information:

A. Requestor’s name, address, and telephone number.

B. A description of the records being sought. The records should be identified as specifically as possible. A request for specific records that are releasable to the public can be processed much more quickly than a request for “all information” on a particular subject. Also fees for a more specific and limited request will generally be less.

C. Separate requests should be submitted for each firm or product involved.

D. A statement concerning willingness to pay fees, including any limitations.

Questions relating to FOI requests may be addressed to the Division of the Freedom of Information Offices at 301-827-6567.
