       HOW TO MAKE A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA) REQUEST

       Naval Health Clinic Charleston

       843-794-6244 or NHC-CharlestonFOIARequest@med.navy.mil

Preparing Your Request:

FOIA Request to Naval Health Clinic Charleston should relate to those matters or issues under the cognizance of the Naval Health Clinic.

You may submit your FOIA request in a written, electronic, or faxed document:

A.  Label your request "FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST," on the request (and also on the envelope, if you use a written request).

B.  Describe the specific record(s) you are seeking with enough detail so that a knowledgeable official of the activity may locate the record with a reasonable amount of effort. Such detail should include descriptive information, time-frame to be searched, etc. Because most Navy records are not retained permanently, the more information provided, the better opportunity there is to determine if the records would still exist and where. The FOIA clearly states that records must exist at the time the request is submitted to be considered.

C.  State your willingness to pay all fees or those up to a specified amount or provide a justification to support a fee waiver.   Include your complete postal service mailing address on your request.
