Commission FOIA Officer

The General Counsel is the FOIA Officer for the Public Service Commission and is the principal point of contact within the Public Service Commission for advice and policy guidance on matters pertaining to the administration of the FOIA. In addition, the FOIA Case Manager is available to assist in responding to all FOIA requests. All requests are handled professionally and expeditiously.

Pursuant to Title 1 D.C.M.R. § 1-402, FOIA requests may be made orally or in writing. However, the Commission may require any oral request to be reduced to writing and submitted to the Commission Secretary’s Office for expeditious review. Written requests that are submitted via mail shall prominently indicate "FOIA Request" on the envelope and written requests submitted via electronic mail shall indicate “FOIA Request” in the subject line. Both mailed and electronically mailed FOIA requests shall be sent to the Commission Secretary’s Office for docketing and processing. After the FOIA request has been docketed, the FOIA Officer and FOIA Case Manager will be notified.

In accordance with 15 D.C.M.R. § 705, the Commission may charge fees for services rendered responding to a FOIA request, including but not limited to, $1.50 per hour spent searching for records (not to exceed $10.00 for each request) and 15¢ per page for the reproduction of documents.
