From: Office of Personnel Management

Good afternoon, Mr. Silverman:

This is not a properly formulated Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request because the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is not the proper responsive agency. OPM does not retain the Official Personnel Folders (OPFs) of all of the current and former Federal employees. OPM only retains the OPFs of its own current OPM employees until retirement.

Therefore, you need to send your request to the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC),, which is part of the National Archives and Records Administration. NPRC retains the personnel records of all former Federal employees.

You have the right to appeal this determination. Should you wish to do so, pursuant to 5 CFR ยง 294.110, you must send a copy of your initial request, a copy of the email response denying the request, and a statement as to why you believe the denying official erred within 90 days from the date of this email to:

U.S. Office of Personnel Management
Office of the General Counsel
1900 E Street NW
Washington, DC 20415

Both the front of the envelope and the first page of your letter should be marked "FOIA Appeal."

The Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) was created to offer mediation services to resolve disputes between FOIA requesters and federal agencies as a non-exclusive alternative to litigation. You may contact OGIS in any of the following ways:

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration

In any email for the OPM FOIA Public Liaison, please state, in the email, that it is for the OPM FOIA Public Liaison.

Thank you.
