Information Access Policy & Compliance Branch
For fastest times, the Air Force has decentralized its FOIA program. If you want to submit a FOIA request online "CLICK HERE". Please note, this is a new link so, the previous link is no longer valid. Please ensure you use the new Public Access Link (PAL) provided above to submit official Freedom of Information Act Request. This link is currently incompatible with Google Chrome.
No single office handles all FOIA requests. If you prefer not to submit on line you can mail/fax your request to the FOIA Requester Service Center where the record is located or the particular base or activity that has the records you want. If you don't know which Air Force activity has the records you want, mail your request to: SAF/AAII, 1000 Air Force Pentagon, Washington, DC 20330-1000. Ensure you describe the records you want as specifically as possible, and let the office know how much you are willing to pay.
Furnish any facts or clues about the time, place, persons, events, subjects, or other details of the information or records you want. That will help the office decide where to search and determine what records pertain to your request. It can also save you and the government time and money, and you may get what you want faster. There is no special form to complete. Mark your request and envelope "FOIA."
