FOIA Request Service Center


Welcome to U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Central Command (USMARCENT) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requester Service Center. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 United States Code (USC) 552, allows an individual (regardless of nationality), a private organization or company, or a local, state, or foreign government to seek access to Executive Branch agency records, such as those held by the U.S. Marine Corps.

All agencies of the U.S. Government are required to disclose records upon receiving a written request, except those records that are protected from disclosure pursuant to nine exemptions and three exclusions. The FOIA applies only to federal agencies and does not create a right of access to records held by Congress, the courts, or by state or local government agencies. Any requests for state or local government records should be directed to the appropriate state or local government agency. 

As a component of the Department of the Navy, Secretary of the Navy Instruction 5720.42G, Department of the Navy Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Program (SECNAVINST 5720.42G), governs the Marine Corps FOIA program. SECNAVINST 5720.42G is codified at 32 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 701.
