FOIA- Freedom of Information Act How to make a FOIA Request

What is FOIA? The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government.
How do I make a FOIA Request? To get information under the FOIA, typically you must make a “FOIA request.” This is a written request in which you describe the information you want in as much detail as possible. A FOIA request can be made for any agency record. You should be aware that the FOIA does not require the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District to do research for you, analyze data, answer written questions, or create records in response to your request. Finally, you should know that FOIA requires that the Jacksonville District release certain information automatically, without the need for you to make a request. So, before you send in a FOIA request, it’s a good idea to look at our website first to see what’s already available. The FOIA allows fee charges based on the requester's category. There are three categories: commercial (pay search, review, and reproduction fees); educational, non-commercial scientific institution, and news media (pay reproduction fees; first 100 pages provided at no cost); and others (pay search and reproduction fees; first two hours search and 100 pages provided at no cost). Please refer to "A Citizen’s Guide To Request Army Records Under The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)" for more detailed information about the FOIA process.

Use the FOIA email FOIA-SAJ@USACE.ARMY.MIL to request your specific need.  
Please Note:  Due to COVID-19 PANDEMIC, there can be some exected delays in responses.  Please contact our office directly by E-mail at FOIA-SAJ@USACE.ARMY.MIL with any questions or concerns.  



  • Be aware of the timeline: The 20-day clock starts when the FOIA is received by the staff, not when it comes in the mail or is sent electronically. This means if it arrives after business hours on a Friday, the clock begins the following Monday morning.
  • Be sure to provide accurate contact information: Be sure to include name, phone number and e-mail address or mailing address.
  • Express willingness to pay: Include the highest threshold amount. 
  • Have a narrow focus: Be very specific on what records are being requested. For example, asking for every record in a work center is not narrow enough. Asking for a specific permit would be detailed enough to retrieve.
