The Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552, allows the public to request copies of records/publications from Federal agencies. Documents are released, unless they are safeguarded by one of the nine exemptions set forth by the FOIA. To expedite the processing of your request, you are encouraged to send your FOIA request directly to the activity that holds the record(s) you seek.
To meet the minimum requirements for requesting information under the FOIA, the request must:
- be in writing and indicate expressly, or by clear implication, that it is a request under the FOIA;
- contain a reasonable description of particular records requested; and
- contain a clear statement of the requester's willingness to pay all fees or fees up to a specified amount.
The Office of Counsel is responsible for administering and supervising the execution of the FOIA Program within the Command. Address is as follows:
