FOIA Officer Information:

If you are not satisfied with our action on any request, you have the right to file an administrative appeal within ninety (90) calendar days from the date of response via regular U.S. mail or email.  By filing an appeal, you preserve your rights under FOIA and give the agency a chance to review and reconsider your request and the agency’s decision.  If you submit your appeal in writing, please address it to the Deputy Archivist of the United States (ND), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, Maryland 20740.  Both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked “Freedom of Information Act Appeal.”  If you submit your appeal by e-mail please send it to, also addressed to the Deputy Archivist of the United States. Please be sure to explain why you believe this response does not meet the requirements of the FOIA.  All correspondence should reference your case tracking number given at the time of response.

 If you would like to discuss our response before filing an appeal to attempt to resolve your dispute without going through the appeals process, you may contact our FOIA Public Liaison Theresa Fitzgerald, for assistance at:
