Who We Are

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has a right of access to Federal agency records, except to the extent that such records are protected from release by a FOIA exemption or a special law enforcement record exclusion.

What We Do

It is VA's policy to release information to the fullest extent under the law. The VA has a decentralized system for handling FOIA requests.
