A Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request is a request to obtain records/documents from New York State or local government agencies. The Office of the Special Commissioner of Investigation frequently publishes the public findings of investigations on our reports page, so it may be useful to check the Reports page before making a FOIL request. When making a FOIL request to SCI, the following information should be included in the request:
• Relevant details, case number(s) if available, and your contact information
Please remember the more detailed and specific the FOIL request, the easier it will be for us to perform a timely search and to locate responsive and relevant documentation.
Please note that FOIL requests are intended for obtaining records and are not suitable for comments or questions requiring a response.
General information regarding FOIL can be obtained from the NYS Committee on Open Government and relevant sections of the Public Officers Law are provided at https://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/foil2.html.
All FOIL request must be submitted in writing:
