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 Department of Labor (DOL) is required
under the Freedom of Information Act (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. The 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.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management (OASAM) is organized into a number of Centers and Regions at The National Office and other locations around the country. If you know which Center or Region maintains the records you are seeking, submit a written FOIA request to the Disclosure Officer of that Center or Region. If you believe that OASAM does maintain the records you are seeking but you do not know the Center or Region which has the records, you may submit a written FOIA request to:
U.S. Department of Labor - OASAM
200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20210
Fax: (202) 693-7954
If you wish to make a FOIA request via e-mail, please send it to email@example.com. Should you have questions or concerns regarding an in-process FOIA request you may contact OASAM's FOIA Service Center. Please use the link below if you are unsure of how to make a FOIA request. We encourage the public to explore OASAM's and DOL’s Web sites or use our search engine to see if the information you seek is already available to the public via the Web.
