As provided by the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. Section 552, the Inter-American Foundation (IAF) will generally disclose its records upon receiving a written request. Records (or portions of them) that are protected under the nine exemptions of the FOIA will not be disclosed. These exemptions are explained in the IAF’s Annual FOIA Report which can be found through the hyperlink below.

To make a FOIA request, please contact foia@iaf.gov. To inquire about the status of a pending request, please contact the Office of the General Counsel (OGC), which is the IAF’s designated FOIA Requester Service Center, at:

Paul Zimmerman, General Counsel


A request should be as specific as possible with regard to names, dates, places, events, subjects, and other relevant information.

The OGC strives to provide citizen-centered, results-oriented service to all FOIA requesters. If you have comments or concerns about the service you have received from the IAF FOIA Requester Service Center, please contact our FOIA Public Liaison, Ravi Kambhampaty.

The FOIA Reports are only available in English. For more information about FOIA and the IAF’s FOIA process, view our FOIA FAQ’s

For copies of IAF's reports, visit the FOIA E-reading Room.


Executive Order 13392 requires all federal agencies to review their FOIA operations. Based on that review, the agency must develop a FOIA Improvement Plan that will make the processing of FOIA requests more streamlined and effective in order to increase public awareness of FOIA processing.
