STATE OPEN RECORDS AND FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA) REQUESTS: WHAT IS A FOIA REQUEST?
Request Information Anonymously
What is a FOIA request and how can you submit a FOIA request that’s important to you, while remaining completely anonymous?
Freedom of Information Act requests and state open records searches are challenging and notoriously time-consuming because of the laborious process and diligent follow-up required. This can become even more difficult when you want to remain anonymous or make multiple requests at different agencies.
Whether you need agency deliberations, details about the award of government contracts, information for political campaigns, evidence for cases in litigation, or a public document that isn’t readily available, we can manage the request process on your behalf while your identity remains confidential.
