Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The 1966 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) permits any person to request access to federal agency records or information. Federal agencies are required to disclose records upon receipt of a written request, except for records that are protected from disclosure by nine exemptions or three exclusions in the Act. Persons are also able to request documents in an electronic format under the 1996 Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments (EFOIA).

If you have any questions concerning GSA OIG FOIA requests, please call (202) 501-1932.

"Note:  When you make a FOIA request, you must describe the records that you want as clearly and specifically as possible.  If the agency cannot identify and locate records that you have requested with a reasonable amount of effort, it will not be able to assist you.  While agencies strive to handle all FOIA requests in a customer-friendly fashion, the FOIA does not require them to do research for you, analyze data, answer written questions, or in any other way create records in order to respond to a request."
