The United States Space Command Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requester Service Center complies with DOJ Executive Order 13,392, FOIA Improvement Plan. Any person has the right to submit a FOIA request for Federal agency records, except for those protected from disclosure by any of nine exemptions or three special law enforcement exclusions. The Department of Defense (DoD) primarily uses exemptions 1 – 7.
Title 5 U.S.C. § 552, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and DoD Manual 5400.07, DoD Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Program, and SPI 2430-01A, FOIA Program, govern how FOIA requests are processed within USSPACECOM. Please see Making a FOIA Request for more information.
Multiple requests for the same documents are posted in our FOIA Reading Room. Please search the Reading Room to determine if the information you seek is posted. When documents have been processed, but not posted to the Reading Room, they will be provide to you in the manner in which they were initially processed. Previously partial or total denied documents will not be reassessed unless superseded by a new or updated document.
Please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at usspacecom.J0.FOIA-PA@us.af.mil or by calling (719) 552-1631.
A single civilian employee manages the USSPACECOM FOIA program and requests are typically processed in the order they are received. FOIA litigations and litigation consultations are court order driven and take precedence over all other requests. As such, expect delays when litigations are in progress.
