The Air Force Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) program is decentralized. For fastest response times, please submit a FOIA request online utilizing the Public Access Link (PAL).
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."
