The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a law that gives you the right to access information from the federal government. It is often described as the law that keeps citizens in the know about their government.

NAVSEA maintains records regarding the development, acquisition, modernization, and maintenance of affordable ships and ordnance systems for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, as well as records regarding the Navy's salvage operations and ship and ordnance donation program.
