The FOIA provides release of US Government records to the public. The US Attorney General promotes openness with the public and requires that all releasable information be processed in a timely manner. The FOIA program is governed by the Freedom of Information Act (Public Law 99-570, 5 US Code 552(B)), DOD 5400.7-R, and AR 25-55, as supplemented. A written request must be submitted under the provisions of the FOIA and the requester must be provided a response within 20 workdays. All requests for Government documents must be processed under the FOIA.
