The Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) provides for public disclosure of information held by administrative agencies of the U.S. Government, with some exceptions. Specifically, the most commonly recognized exceptions are: personal information which clearly invades personal privacy; commercial trade information belonging to a private entity which the
Government has because of a contract or for regulatory purposes; and information withheld for security reasons. FOIA is considered a general access statute and is the broadest of all such statutes.
