Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO)

Freedom of Information Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) provides that any person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information. Like all federal agencies, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is required under FOIA to disclose records requested in writing by any person. However, agencies may withhold information pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions contained in the statute. FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies.

If you believe that OCFO maintains the records you are seeking, you may submit a written FOIA request to:

FOIA Coordinator
U.S. Department of Labor - OCFO
200 Constitution Ave NW
Room S-4030
Washington, DC 20210
Fax: 202-693-6963
