Open Government and FOIA - CFO

Open Government Material

The District is committed to a transparent, open form of government. District agency websites are required to make certain records available online to the public, if those records exist. In cases where these records exist but are not yet available online, agencies are working to provide them as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact the FOIA Officer.

FOIA Information

Requests may also be submitted by mail, fax or email. However, please note that FOIA requests submitted online will be easier to track and process. 

To understand the process before making a request, please see foia.dc.gov.
