How to Make a FOIA Request
The mission of the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) is to provide Contract Administration Services to the Department of Defense Acquisition Enterprise and its partners. If you are seeking records pertaining to a Department of Defense (DoD) contract award (i.e., the actual contract and/or modifications, request for proposal, etc.) please request the information directly from the issuing military branch or DoD component who issued the contract/RFP. For your convenience, a listing of principal FOIA contacts is located at http://open.defense.gov/Transparency/FOIA/FindAnOffice.aspx. If you are seeking contract administration records for contracts administered by DCMA, or if you are seeking other DCMA records, you can submit a FOIA request by email or US mail. To submit a request by email, send to DCMA.FOIA@dcma.mil . To send a FOIA request by US mail, label your request “Freedom of Information Act Request”, preferably within the request letter and on the envelope, and mail to:

Defense Contract Management Agency
ATTN: FOIA Office
Building 10500
3901 A Avenue
Fort Lee, VA 23801

Prior to submitting your request, please ensure the following requirements are met:

  • Request must include a postal mailing address, regardless of the way it was submitted.
  • Include your name, address, telephone number, and a statement of the records being sought, identified as specifically as possible.
  • Request must be for Agency records; the FOIA is NOT a research service, therefore no questions are answered under the FOIA.
  • State your willingness to pay applicable fees. (See Do I have to pay for a FOIA request? for more information.)
  • FAQ's
