The Office of Public Information is responsible for administering policies, programs, and procedures to ensure DOE compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOlA), 5 U.S.C. 552.

Due to COVID-19 employees are on telework and have no access to requests sent by regular mail or requests sent by facsimile.  We ask that requesters submit FOIA requests electronically to or by using the electronic FOIA request form below.

The resources on these pages are provided to aid in finding answers to questions about programs of the Department of Energy and to obtain information that is publicly available without submitting a FOlA request.  If the information is not available here, submit a Freedom of Information Act request.

What is the FOIA? (PDF) provides background on the FOIA.

FOIA Fees (PDF) discusses fees requestors pay for processing FOIA requests.

The Public Handbook for Gaining Access to Department of Energy Information (PDF) explains how you can obtain DOE information.
