Bureau and Office FOIA Contacts

You may use the below contact information to ask questions to the bureau/office FOIA Contacts to assist you in determining what information you can obtain without submitting a FOIA request or where such information may be located. Please note that FOIA requests submitted via email, whether sent to any of the below FOIA Contacts or elsewhere, will not be accepted for processing and will be returned to you with instructions to resubmit the requests using FOIAonline at https://www.foiaonline.gov, unless the requests are for the Office of Inspector General's records.  

You may file requests with the Office of Inspector General at https://forms.doioig.gov/(S(5wzslktwqtoibluw5yx32rkc))/foia_form.aspx or through the government-wide portal at https://www.foia.gov.

Alternatively, you may send a letter or facsimile to an appropriate FOIA contact.

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.
