Create and Send a Public Records Request

CFOIC has teamed with NFOIC and FOIA Machine to provide an online public records request and tracking system. Whether you’re a professional FOI user or a member of the general public who has never submitted an open records request, we’ll help you streamline the process. Using FOIA Machine*, you can track the progress of your requests, keep your efforts organized, set reminders for yourself and more.  Users will be able to:

  • Prepare an open records request following the applicable laws of that jurisdiction
  • Send requests directly to the correct person or department
  • Track requests from filing through receipt of records
  • Rally support for their requests when governments are unresponsive

If you have specific questions about how this platform works, please visit the FAQ section.

* Remember, to file a request electronically, users need to be logged in with FOIA Machine. You can create an account here if you don’t have one set up. How FOIA Machine works.
