Freedom of Information Act

Mr. Kendall Cooper, Command FOIA/PA Manager

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requester Service is established to comply with Executive Order 13392. The FOIA is a federal statute which generally provides that any person has a right to request federal agency records, except to the extent the records are protected from disclosure by any of the nine exemptions contained in the law or by one of three special law enforcement exclusions.

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 the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). Because USSTRATCOM must comply with national security laws, some documents or portions thereof may be exempt from release. Please see FOIA Requests under FOIA Requests for more information.

As your FOIA request may be similar to previous requests approved for release, please review the Reading Room section of this web page to determine if the information you are requesting is already posted.

Please note: If you are making a request for personal records regarding yourself, you must provide a signed letter. The letter, containing your signature, can be mailed, faxed or scanned and sent as an email attachment.

This FOIA Requester Service Center is the initial point of contact for FOIA requesters to receive status, updates and appropriate information about their requests and is also responsible for processing requests for information from the following USSTRATCOM Subcomponent and Joint Functional Component Commands: USCYBERCOM; JFCC-GS; JFCC Space; JFCC-IMD; JFCC-ISR; SCC-WMD; JWAC; and Standing Joint Force HQ - Elimination.

Any requesters who have concerns about the service they are receiving from USSTRATCOM can raise their concerns with Mr. James Hogan, FOIA Public Liaison, Chief of FOIA Policy, Appeals and Litigation. He can be reached at 571-372-0462 or email at
