FOIA

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Title 5, U.S.C. Section 552, as amended -- known as the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) -- requires federal agencies to ensure that agency information is available for public inspection and copying, and enables individuals to access records of such agencies, subject to statutory exemptions, for any public or private purpose. The 1996 Electronic Freedom of Information Amendment to Title 5, U.S.C. Section 552 provides for public access to information in an electronic format.


The ICIG does not accept FOIA or Privacy Act (PA) requests directly. The Information Management Division (IMD), under the Policy & Strategy Division, is the central point for all incoming FOIA and PA requests for the ODNI. The IMD staff coordinates all ODNI responses regarding the release of records and information.
