The Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C Sec. 552 (as amended by the OPEN Government Act of 2007, Pub. L. No. 110-175, 121 Stat. 2524) gives the public the right to access any Department of the Navy records unless the information in those records is protected by one or more of the nine exemptions that qualify an Agency's need to withhold records from a requester, and there is a sound legal basis to withhold them. The Department of the Navy adheres to the policy and disclosure regulations set forth in 32 CFR Chapter VI Part 701, to implement the FOIA uniformly and consistently and to provide maximum allowable disclosure of agency records upon request by an individual.
How to file a Navy FOIA request
Per DONCIO Directive of 12 DEC 2013, all FOIA requests will be processed through the FOIAonline tracking and management web-based tool. Visit https://www.foiaonline.gov/foiaonline/action/public/home to submit a FOIA request.
For questions, please contact the NDW FOIA Coordinator, Ms. Catrina Simpson, email@example.com.
Individuals needing a copy of an incident report for the purpose of adjudicating a claim (e.g., traffic accident report or other damage to personal property) may request a copy of that report, in writing, to the Security Office on the installation where the incident occurred.
