Frequently Asked Questions
What is FOIA?
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that provides the public the right to request access to records from any federal agency.
States in the US have similar state-level laws to enforce residents’ rights to request records. These are commonly referred to as public records laws, open records laws, or sunshine laws, in addition to FOIA laws.
What types of information need to be redacted from FOIA requests?
When records requested contain sensitive information, agencies need to redact it before they send the records out. Examples include:
- Personal information
- Emails and phone numbers
- Medical records
- Social security number (SSN)
Where is NextRequest data hosted?
