Freedom of Information Act Reading Room
The 1996 Amendments to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) require publicly accessible “electronic reading rooms” which contain FMCS’ FOIA response documents and other information routinely available to the public, and which include electronic search and indexing features.
Before submitting a FOIA request, please check to see if the information you are seeking is already available on FMCS’ web site.
FMCS also maintains a conventional reading room where paper copies of documents are available for inspection and copying. You may visit FMCS’s public reading room in person at 2100 K Street NW, Room 609, Washington DC 20427
