Requesting Information Under the FOIA

Information requests made to the FPIF are governed by the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (the Act) (5 ILCS 140). If any requested records will be used for a commercial purpose, please disclose that fact when submitting the request.

When making requests under the FOIA, FPIF has developed a Freedom of Information Act Form to ensure an easy and transparent way for the public to submit their requests. While we recommend the use of this form, it is not required.

In accordance with the Act, there is no fee for records that are sent electronically. The first 50 pages of black-and-white letter- or legal-sized paper copies are provided free of charge; after that, we charge $0.15 per page. FPIF reserves the right to charge for the reproduction of color copies, copies that are not letter- or legal-sized, and shipping expenses.
