RequestFOIA was developed through the collaborative effort of a group of technology, records and communications experts based out of Massachusetts. The primary directive of the company is vested in providing a service that assists constituents, agencies and municipalities in streamlining requests for public records.
Since 1967, the Freedom of Information Act has bestowed the public with the right to request access to official government records. However, a vast majority of people are unaware of the types of documents that constitute as public records and what information is permissible for the general public to view. Public records are defined as documents or segments of information that are not considered confidential and generally pertain to the conduct of government; they are required by law to be kept and maintained in the public office where they were filed. Any material created by a government agency or an officer during the course of the performance of duty qualifies as a public record.
There are many degrees of accessibility to public records between states; each state has its own laws, rules and regulations regarding what is considered to be a public record. RequestFOIA experts assist constituents in submitting their request for information to any local, state or federal agency. We are committed to providing our customers with the support that they need when accessing information.
