FOIA Guidelines

Review Standard County FOIA Charges

Turnaround Time

We will respond within five working days. If we cannot respond to a request within the five-day working period, you will be informed in writing with an explanation as to why. This allows the County an extension of seven additional working days to respond, providing a total of 12 working days.

If someone requests a very large number of records, and we determine it cannot be filled within 12 working days without disrupting other County organizational responsibilities, the County may petition the court for additional time. However, the County will contact you to attempt to reach an agreement with you concerning the production of the records before going to the court as required by FOIA.

Requests under NVRA do not have the same response requirements as FOIA. Our Office will respond as soon as we are able to do so. 

Our Response

Arlington County will do one of the following:

  • Provide the records requested in their entirety or notify you where the record can be located if already publicly available.
  • Withhold all of the records requested, because they are subject to a specific statutory exemption (see below for information regarding exemptions). If records are withheld, you will receive a written explanation identifying the volume and subject matter of the records withheld and the specific section of the Code of Virginia that allows the exemption.
  • Provide some of the records requested, but withhold others. An entire record will not be withheld if only a portion is subject to exemption. You will receive a written response stating the specific section of the Code of Virginia that allows exemption of a portion of the records.
  • Respond in writing that the requested records cannot be found or do not exist. However, if another public body has the requested records, contact information will be included in the response.

Effective November 1, 2018, standard FOIA rates shall apply for all labor and materials. Rates include an hourly rate cap of $25.00/hr. which will be charged for the administration of record retrieval.

Upon request, the County will provide an estimate for fulfilling the FOIA request.

  1. If the County estimates that its costs are $200 or greater an estimate will be provided and a 50% deposit will be required to be paid by the requestor prior to the records being retrieved and disclosed.
  2. Final Invoice for either the remainder (if deposit was paid) or total amount due will be provided to the requester at the same time as the County's response.

The County’s charges for FOIA are consistent with the following guidelines:

  • A public body may make reasonable charges not to exceed its actual cost incurred in accessing, duplicating, supplying, or searching for the requested records and shall make all reasonable efforts to supply the requested records at the lowest possible cost. 
  • No public body shall impose any extraneous, intermediary, or surplus fees or expenses to recoup the general costs associated with creating or maintaining records or transacting the general business of the public body. Any duplicating fee charged by a public body shall not exceed the actual cost of duplication.
  • Prior to conducting a search for records, the public body shall notify the requester in writing that the public body may make reasonable charges not to exceed its actual cost incurred in accessing, duplicating, supplying, or searching for requested records and inquire of the requester whether he would like to request a cost estimate in advance of the supplying of the requested records set forth in subsection F of § 2.2-3704 of the Code of Virginia.
  • All charges for the supplying of requested records shall be estimated in advance at the request of the citizen as set forth in subsection F of § 2.2-3704 of the Code of Virginia. The five days allowed the County for a response does not include the time between provision of a requested estimate and approval of the estimate by the requester. 
  • If the estimated cost is more than $200, a deposit may be required (not to exceed the amount of the estimate), before the County proceeds with your request. The five days allowed the County for a response does not include the time between a request for a deposit and a response from the requester.
  • Cost covers items such as staff time, copying or any other resources directly related to supplying the requested records. It does not include general overhead.
  • If money is owed from a previous FOIA request that has remained unpaid for more than 30 days, Arlington County may require payment of the past-due bill before responding to a new FOIA request.
General Guidelines for Requests
  • The County requires that the name and the address of the requester be provided so that it can be determined to whom to send the information, but also so that the County can be determine whether the person requesting the information is entitled to request records under the law.
  • You must identify the records needed with reasonable specificity. This does not refer to or limit the volume or number of records requested; instead, it requires that a request be specific enough to identify and locate records.
  • You must ask for existing records or documents. FOIA allows for inspection or copying of records; it does not require the County to answer general questions about the work of the department involved, nor does it require the department to create a record that does not exist.
  • Records can be provided in the format in which they were created.
  • For example, if you’re requesting records maintained in an Excel spreadsheet, you may elect to receive those records electronically, via email or on a computer disk, or to receive a printed copy of those records. Records created by hand can only be provided in print.
  • You may be contacted if there are questions.
  • Please be advised that FOIA requests are public records.

The Code of Virginia allows any public body to withhold certain records from public disclosure. Arlington County commonly withholds records subject to exemptions such as:

  • Personnel records
  • Records subject to attorney-client privilege
  • Vendor proprietary information
  • Records relating to the negotiation and award of a contract, prior to a contract being awarded
  • Security matters
