Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
The FOIA is a federal statute which affords any person the right to obtain federal agency records unless the records (or a part of the records) are protected from disclosure by any of the nine exemptions contained in the law or by one of three special law enforcement record exclusions.
Persons requesting records from the FDIC will be charged for the direct costs of search, review and duplication, unless such costs are less than $10.00. See our FOIA Service Center and fee schedule for additional information.
Any requests for interviews, quotes or other media-related information must be sent to the Office of Communications.

Individuals who contact the Inspector General Hotline via electronic mail are not anonymous to Hotline staff and cannot be assured of confidentiality due to the non-secure nature of electronic mail systems.
