Service Centers and Public Liaisons



Each bureau has a FOIA Public Liaison who can assist individuals in locating records particular to a bureau.

FOIA Public Liaisons report to the Department’s Chief FOIA Officer and serve as supervisory officials to whom a requester can raise concerns about the service the requester has received.

FOIA Public Liaisons are responsible for assisting in reducing delays, increasing transparency and understanding of the status of requests, and assisting in the resolution of disputes.

Additionally, you may contact the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) for assistance. OGIS serves as a bridge between requesters and agencies, particularly in situations where clear, direct communication has been lacking. You can reach OGIS by email at ogis@nara.gov, by phone at 1-877-684-6448, or by fax at (202) 741-5769.
