Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
The 377th Mission Support Group is responsible for processing requests for Kirtland AFB records under the FOIA provisions. Written requests may be received by postal service, facsimile or electronically. Requests received by facsimile or electronically must have a mailing address included since it may not be practical to provide a substantive response electronically.
**Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Office will be minimally manned until further notice. FOIA managers will be teleworking and will continue to process your request to the best of their capability; however, we expect delays in response times. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We will notify you once the office is back to normal operations.
FOIA requests can be submitted and tracked online through the AF eFOIA Public Access Link. Before submitting a request, see if the records are available to the public in the Air Force FIOA Library.
For mailing, e-mailing or faxing a request for AFMC records, use the "FOIA Office" contact information and ensure the request and envelope are marked "FOIA."
Regardless of the submission method, describe the requested records as specifically as possible to narrow the search. Furnish any facts or clues about the time, place, persons, events, subjects, contract number or other details that will help decide where to search and determine what records pertain to your request. That can also save you and the government time and money, and you may get what you want faster. You must also provide the fee amount you are willing to pay for administrative processing.
Submitting Privacy Requests
If you or your designated representative are seeking records on yourself and the record is maintained/retrieved by your name or other identifier, this is a Privacy Act request. All written requests must be mailed or faxed directly to the appropriate Privacy Act systems manager identified in the system of records notice or the appropriate Requester Service Center.
NOTE: Requesters, to include military and all federal civilian employees, should not use government equipment, supplies, stationery, postage, telephones, or official mail channels to make FOIA or Privacy Act requests. Requests should be made through personal equipment or postal service
If dissatisfied with the response received from the center, you may contact the FOIA Public Liaison at 202-404-1393 or email email@example.com.
