How to Make a FOIA Request

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Privacy Office is responsible for processing Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, requests. FOIA allows members of the public to obtain a wide range of records from federal agencies. In most cases, ONR records are subject to the provisions of the Privacy Act, with releasable records subject to the restrictions set forth in those laws.
