Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Requests

Welcome to the Indiana National Guard’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requester Service Center and Privacy Office. This Requestor Service Center was designed to assist the public in making FOIA requests for Indiana National Guard records to include the Indiana National Guard’s Joint Staff, Air National Guard, and Army National Guard. Our office is also available to assist individuals seeking records about themselves under the Privacy Act (PA) or to assist in complaints and compliance with the Privacy Act.

The FOIA, known by its legal cite as Title 5 U.S.C. § 552, along with the Department of Defense (DoD) Regulation 5400.7, governs how FOIA requests will be processed within the Indiana National Guard.

How to file a FOIA or Privacy Request

Please note that the filing of a FOIA or Privacy request is a personal matter. Military personnel and Federal Government Employees may not use government time or equipment to make such requests.

If you are seeking personal records on yourself under the Privacy Act, you must provide a signed letter indicating the specific records you are seeking. Based on the existing retrieval practice for the records you are seeking, you may be asked to provide additional information to allow us to retrieve your record. The letter, containing your signature, can be mailed, faxed, or scanned and sent as an e-mail attachment.

Essential Elements of a FOIA Request

  • Cite that you are requesting records under the FOIA
  • Provide your full name and contact information, to include e-mail address to expedite communications
  • Provide a reasonable description of the record(s) requested as well as the office(s) you believe are most likely to have the records sought. A listing of the offices serviced by this requestor service center can be found at http://www.ng.mil/jointstaff/default.aspx.
  • Provide a statement of your fee category and indicate your willingness to pay applicable fees for processing. You may include a dollar amount you are willing to pay up to, or you may leave the amount you are willing to pay open ended.

Fees

Fee Categories

  • Commercial: Increases the commercial interest of the requestor.
  • All Others: All other requestors.

Fees

The FOIA provides for the collection of fees for:

  • Reviews: Time spent to determine if the record is releasable under legal guidelines, excluding resolution of legal or policy issues. This does include time spent excising text that is exempt under FOIA.
  • Reproduction: Generating a copy of a requested record in the appropriate medium, for example paper or computer file.
