>>> You can use FOIA.gov to submit your request or to help you determine if filing a FOIA request is the best option for you.
Do research before you request:
To see if the information is already publicly available. You can find a lot of useful information on individual agency websites and you can also search across the government for information.
If the information you want is not publicly available, you can submit a FOIA request.
If your FOIA request was initially denied in whole or in part, the final FOIA response letter advising you of the denial will also advise you of your right to appeal the determination. If you wish to make an appeal you must file your appeal with the correct appellate authority within ninety (90) days. The appellate authority for DoDEA is the Deputy Chief Management Officer (DCMO).
Note: Return address information will be located on all final FOIA response letters that are denied in whole or in part.
