DC FOIA Information

Open Government and FOIA

Through our DOB Agency Performance Dashboard; Scout, our online consolidated database; eRecords, our electronic records management system and other platforms, much publicly-available information, such as building permits, plans and drawings, inspection histories, Stop Work Orders, vacant property statuses, is readily accessible. If you cannot find the information you are looking for here or elsewhere on DC.gov, you can submit a FOIA request online via the District of Columbia Freedom of Information Act Public Access Portal. Requests may also be submitted by mail, fax, or email. However, please note that FOIA requests submitted online will be easier to track and process.

To understand the FOIA process before making a request, including information on appeals, please see the District of Columbia Freedom of Information Act webpage.

The FOIA Officer is the principal contact point within DOB for advice and policy guidance on matters pertaining to the administration of the FOIA. All requests are handled professionally and expeditiously.
