How to Send a Good FOIA Request to the Department of State

Laura S. Kauer, National Security Archive: “The Department of State’s launch of its new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) online request platform and terrific, comprehensive, 80,000-document online FOIA reading room, makes it a fitting time to review how to craft a good FOIA request to the Department of State (or any agency, actually). Frequent filers of FOIA requests know that Department of State is one of the most responsive agencies when it comes to requests, appeals, and working with requesters to obtain as many responsive and relevant documents as possible.  Let’s make their job easier by submitting well-written requests.”
