Does ODNI release information to the public?

ODNI frequently releases items of general public interest on this website. The site includes general information about ODNI , unclassified current reports/publications , speeches , congressional testimonies , and press releases. Some ODNI publications are classified, however, and are not publicly available.

Information is also released via the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act (statutes which give US citizens access to US government information or US government information about themselves, respectively). ODNI handles numerous cases each year and maintains an online Electronic Reading Room to release this information to the public and to provide guidance for requesting information.

How do I submit a FOIA/Privacy Act request?

The goal of the ODNI's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)/Privacy Act office is to keep the public better informed about the ODNI's efforts to ensure US security through the release of as much information as possible. But because of the ODNI's need to comply with the national security laws of the United States, some documents, or portions thereof, cannot be released to the public. Nonetheless, a substantial amount of ODNI information has been or can be released following review.
