Freedom of Information Act
and Privacy Act Office


The mission of DTRA's Freedom of Information (FOIA) and Privacy Act (Privacy) Office is to ensure compliance with both statutes while providing timely access to DTRA records, upon receipt of a FOIA or Privacy Act request.

THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), as amended, generally provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records. Federal agencies are required to disclose records upon receipt of a written request, except for those records that are protected from disclosure by any of the nine exemptions or three exclusions of the FOIA.

THE PRIVACY ACT regulates the Executive Branch's collection, maintenance, use, and dissemination of personal information about U.S. citizens and other persons lawfully admitted for permanent residence. The Privacy Act also permits access to records about oneself (subject to Privacy Act exemptions); permits the amendment of a record if it is inaccurate, irrelevant, untimely, or incomplete; limits the use of social security numbers; and provides judicial remedies, both civil and criminal, for violations of the Privacy Act.
