Freedom of Information Act


The Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C Sec. 552 (as amended by the OPEN Government Act of Pub. L. 114–185, § 2, June 30, 2016, 130 Stat. 538) gives the public the right to access any Department of the Navy (DON) records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of the nine exemptions that qualify an Agency's need to withhold records from a requester, and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them. The DON adheres to the policy and disclosure regulations set forth in 32 CFR Chapter VI Part 701, to implement the FOIA uniformly and consistently and to provide maximum allowable disclosure of agency records upon request by an individual.
