Freedom of Information Act
The Office of the Chief Information Officer has the responsibility for oversight of the Army Contracting Command's Freedom of Information Act Program. The Freedom of Information Act is a federal law that establishes the public's right to request existing records from federal government agencies. Requests are only for agency "records." The agency is not required to create documents in response to a request.
FOIA, which is known by its legal cite as 5 U.S.C. § 552, along with the Department of Defense and Army Regulations, govern how requests will be processed within the Army. Army Regulation 25-55, the Department of the Army FOIA Program, can be found at Part 518 of Chapter 32 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which is available in most public libraries.
See Also: The Privacy Act
Any person can file a FOIA request, including U.S. citizens and foreign nationals, organizations, universities, businesses, and state and local governments may also file FOIA requests.
No special form is required; however, the request should be labeled as a "Freedom of Information Act Request," with a reasonable description of the records requested. You must also state a willingness to pay any search and review fees.
You can request documents under the FOIA by fax, letter, or electronic mail and must include the following information:
Name and business name (if applicable)
Mailing and email addresses
Fax number (if applicable)
Whether the requester wants to view the documents or have them copied and mailed
If requesting a fee waiver, the requestor must state the basis for the waiver

Categories of requesters and how their fees determined:
Commercial - Requesters who seek information for a use or purpose that furthers their commercial, trade, or profit interest are considered commercial requesters. Commercial requesters pay all fees for search, review, and duplication.
Educational -Institutions of education, including preschools, elementary or secondary schools and institutions of higher learning, qualify as educational institutions. The records must be sought in furtherance of scholarly research. Educational requesters pay only duplication fees, unless it is determined that fees are waived or reduced in the public interest. The first 100 pages are provided at no cost.
Non-commercial scientific - A non-commercial scientific institution is operated solely for conducting scientific research. The records must be sought in furtherance of scientific research. Like educational requesters, these requesters pay only duplication fees, unless it is determined that fees are waived or reduced in the public interest. The first 100 pages are provided at no cost.
News media - A representative of the news media is a person actively gathering news for an entity organized and operated to publicize or broadcast news to the public. News media pay only duplication fees, unless it is determined that fees are waived or reduced in the public interest. The first 100 pages are provided at no cost.
Other requester - Requesters who do not qualify in another category are considered "other" requesters, and normally make requests for agency records for their personal use. "Other" requesters receive two hours search time, all review costs, and the first 100 pages at no cost.
IMPORTANT - Willingness to pay statement
All requesters must include a "willingness to pay statement" in their request, regardless of the fee category, however, this does not mean a fee will be charged. The requester can set a limit on the costs to be incurred. For example, he or she may state "not to exceed $50." If the estimate for answering the request exceeds the limit, the FOIA Officer will call the requester to discuss his/her options. The requester has four options: accept the copied documents up to the previous specified amount of money; cancel the entire request; authorize the money needed to complete the request; or, authorize additional funds up to another specified amount. Except for commercial requesters whose fees total more than $15, waivers are always considered.
Charges. Fees are assessed only for search, review, and copies. FOIA requesters whose bill comes to $15 or less are not charged:
Administrative (E-9/GS-8 and below) rate per hour: $24
Professional (Contractor/O-1 to O-6/W-1 to W-5/GS-9 to GS-15) rate per hour: $48

Exemption 1 - Protects national Security information concerning the national defense of foreign policy, provided that it has been properly classified under Executive Order.

Exemption 5 - Protects "inter-agency or intra-agency memorandums or letters which would not be available by law to a party other than one in litigation with the agency."
Exemption 6 - Protects information about individuals in "personnel and medical files and similar files" when disclosure of such information "would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy."
Exemption 7 - Protects "records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent that the production of such law enforcement records or information" could be expected to cause one of the harms: (1) interference with law enforcement procedures; (2) deprive a person the right to a fair adjudication; or (3) cause an unwarranted invasion of privacy.
Exemption 8 - Protects matters that are "contained in or related to examination, operation or condition reports prepared by, on behalf of, or for the use of an agency responsible for the regulation or supervision of financial institutions."

The Army component determines that it neither controls nor otherwise possesses the requested record.
A record has not been described with sufficient detail to conduct a reasonable search.
The requester has failed unreasonably to comply with procedural requirements.
