How to submit a FOIA request

Any individual may submit a FOIA request to NASA Armstrong by mail, fax, electronic mail at the following address:

NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center
P.O. Box 273, MS 4839
Edwards, CA 93524
(661)276-3088 Fax

FOIA requests can also be submitted in person at the following address:

Armstrong Public Affairs Office (PAO)
4800 Lilly Drive
Bldg. 4839
Edwards, CA

The request must be in writing. No telephone requests will be accepted. If you do not know the exact title of the document you are seeking, you should provide a reasonable description of the documents. The more information that you can provide about the document, such as its author or date, the more expeditiously your request will be processed. Your request will be logged and a tracking number assigned to it. The tracking number assigned is of great importance to you as a requester because, in the event you would like to check the status of your request, the number enables us to locate where in the process your request is.

You should submit your request to the FOIA Office at the NASA Center that authored the documents or the Inspector General's FOIA Office at NASA Headquarters for all Inspector General documents. View the types of information available at each NASA Center.

If you do not know which NASA Center to contact, then you may submit your request to NASA Headquarters. Headquarters will attempt to identify the responsible Center and forward your request.

Please note that a lot of NASA information is available on-line and does not require a FOIA request.

Fees may be associated with new FOIA requests. No fee is charged for downloading a previously released FOIA document. Click on these links for FOIA Fee Structure and FOIA Schedule of Fees.
