This Service Center was designed to assist the public in making Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests for Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATFS) records. The information obtained herein is not intended to be definitive or exhaustive. The FOIA, which is known by its legal cite as Title 5 U.S.C. § 552, along with the Department of Defense (DOD) Regulation 5400.7-R, governs how requests will be processed within JIATFS. Because JIATFS must comply with national security laws, some documents or parts of documents may be exempt from release. See FOIA exemptions under "How to File a FOIA Request" for more information.
This FOIA Requester Service Center is the initial point of contact for FOIA requesters (see FOIA Contact) to receive status, updates and appropriate information about their requests. Any requesters that have concerns about the service they are receiving from this FOIA Requester Service Center can raise concerns with Mr. James Hogan, FOIA Public Liaison, Chief of FOIA Policy, Appeals and Litigation. He can be reached at (571) 372-0449 or at OSD.FOIALiaison@mail.mil.
