Information for Your Request

The description of the records you are requesting is important. The scope of your request can impact how quickly we can respond to your request. Your description should be as clear and specific as possible and must give OST personnel enough detail so that they are able to reasonably determine exactly which records are being requested and where to locate them.

Fees

Most FOIA requests do not involve any fees. However, we may inform you that there are fees associated with your request. You may request a fee waiver under the standard provided in the FOIA. You may request a fee waiver at any time during the processing of your request. The OST will grant a fee waiver when disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations and activities of the government and is not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester. Requests for fee waivers from individuals who are seeking records pertaining to themselves usually do not meet this standard. Additionally, a requester’s inability to pay fees is not a legal basis for granting a fee waiver. When making a request for a fee waiver you must explain how your request meets the standard described above.
