FOIA requests may be obtained directly from the specific office in which you are requesting information. You may also write a letter to that department requesting information. FOIA Request may also be made by filling out one of the FOIA Request Forms available on this website and mailing it to the appropriate department FOIA Officer, or delivering it to that office in person. Most departments have designated FOIA Officers and requests for information should be directed to them. All other requests for information should go to the Board/Administrative Office. Each department has the right to deny information, although that department must give the reason for denial and it must be for just cause. If the request is denied and you feel you should be allowed the information, you may file a request with the Illinois Attorney General.
