FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

Enacted in 1966, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has a right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to federal agency records, except to the extent that such records (or portions of them) are protected from public disclosure by one of nine exemptions or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions. The FOIA thus established a statutory right of public access to Executive Branch information in the federal government.

Electronic Library Index
The Electronic Library contains a list of categories of documents or information specifically identified for inclusion by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), (i.e. the Current Annual Report ) as well as documents or links to information for which we have received multiple FOIA requests. The number of items in the library undoubtedly will grow.

Submit a FOIA request
Before making your request under the FOIA, please make sure the information you seek is not already public (i.e. U.S. Superintendent of Documents, the National Technical Information Service (Department of Commerce), the Earth Resources Observation Systems [EROS] Data Center (Department of the Interior), and the NASA Library) or if the information relates to a procurement, that a solicitation library does not already exist. If submitting a FOIA, please be as specific as possible in identifying the records you want.
