DOI FOIA Contacts

If you have not found the information you are seeking in a FOIA Library, you may submit a written FOIA request to the FOIA Contact at the bureau/office where you believe the records are maintained. You may also ask the FOIA Contacts what information you can obtain without submitting a FOIA request or where such information may be located.

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, by phone at 1-877-684-6448, or by fax at (202) 741-5769.
