Freedom Of Information Act
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal statute which affords any person the right to obtain federal agency records, unless the records (or a part of the records) are protected from disclosure by any of the nine exemptions contained in the law.
On October 2, 1996, President Clinton signed into law the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of1996. "Agency records" obtainable under the FOIA include a wide range of documents or other materials (including print, photographic, and electronic formats) that were created or obtained by a Federal agency and are, at the time the request is filed, in that agency's possession and control.
Requesters who have submitted FOIA requests to the Department of Energy Savannah River Site on or after December 31, 2008, may obtain the date received by this office and the estimated completion date by clicking here. You will need to know your FOIA control number to identify your request on the listing.
If you would like additional information related to your request you should contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at this location. If your request has been transferred to a component of the Department to be processed, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at the location where your request has been transferred. You may access the telephone number to the appropriate FOIA Requester Service Center at http://management.energy.gov/contact_us/foia-pa.htm.
