Rediscover YOUR Public Lands
Requests for public information do not require a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. You may wish to contact the Records Administrator/FOIA Coordinator regarding the information in which you are interested from the state of your interest. Click here to make a general inquiry to different Bureau of Land Management (BLM) offices via EMail.
Some installations do receive FOIA requests electronically through EMail.
Note: Agencies may not be able to protect the privacy interests of individuals as much as they would like when processing FOIAs via EMail. Electronic communication systems are harder to secure from unauthorized access, and it may not be wise for FOIA requesters to send some requests such as those for personal information to an EMail mailbox. We recommend that requests for information that are personal in nature be sent in writing to the respective Bureau FOIA Coordinator.
Privacy Act requests are not accepted electronically. Regulations require a signature for such requests. Please mail your request to the Privacy Act Coordinator at the address listed.
If a FOIA request must be submitted to receive releasable portions of information identified as "non-public" please follow these procedures. Procedures are based on the FOIA and Departmental Regulations at 43 CFR Part 2.
Requesters are advised that the time for processing requests may be delayed if certain information below is not provided with the original FOIA request.
If the same information is requested from more than one Bureau installation send your request to the Washington Office FOIA Coordinator, at the following address:

Fee waivers are provided when disclosure is in the public interest because it: (a) Is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government (Does the record concern the operations or activities of the government? Is disclosure likely to contribute to the public understanding of these operations and activities? Will that contribution be significant?); and (b) is not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester.
