U.S. Army Installation Management Command Freedom of Information Act Requester Service Center
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 disclosure by one of nine exemptions or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.
What is a FOIA Request?
A FOIA request is a written request for Department of Defense records, made by "any person", including a member of the public (U.S. or Foreign citizen), an organization, or a business. Requests may also be made through an attorney or other representative on behalf of "any person". Please refer to "A Citizen's Guide to Request Army Records" accessible from the menu on this page for information on submitting U.S. Army FOIA requests.
What is a FOIA Requester Service Center?
In accordance with Executive Order 13392, "Improving Agency Disclosure of Information," FOIA Requester Service Centers were established to serve as the first place FOIA requesters may contact to seek information concerning the status of their requests as well as the agency's response.
The IMCOM FOIA Requester Service Center is the primary contact source for FOIA requests for records pertaining to garrison operations and management of Army installation support activities.
Where to Submit Your FOIA Status Request?
Each federal agency is responsible for meeting FOIA requirements for its own records. FOIA requesters, who have questions concerning the status of their request, or the agency's response, should refer to the DA FOIA Requester Service Centers, accessible from the menu on this page, to determine where best to submit your FOIA status request.
Only FOIA status requests for records pertaining to garrison operations and management of Army installation support activities should be submitted to this center.
Please include a copy of the FOIA Status Request Form, label your request "FOIA Status Request" on the envelope, and address your request to:
