The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) excludes federal agencies from its definition of persons permitted to make FOIA requests [see 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(3)(A) and 5 U.S.C. § 551(2)]. To avoid confusion as to whether employees are requesting information through FOIA in their personal or official capacities, it is the preference of the ICE FOIA Office that ICE employees submitting FOIA requests do so using their personal email accounts instead of their official email accounts. Moreover, since use agency letterhead is generally limited to official agency business, it is the preference of the FOIA office that employees refrain from submitting FOIA requests on agency letterhead.
