"Enacted in 1966, and taking effect on July 5, 1967, 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 web portal provides a direct link to the FOIA contacts by executive agency.  To learn more about FOIA, including how to make a FOIA request, click here.
