What’s the difference between a FOIA request and a request for information?
The Virginia Freedom of Information Act specifically applies to public records that currently exist. A public record is a writing or recording that is owned, prepared by, or in the possession of a public body or its employees or agent in the transaction of public working. Requests for public records, FOIA requests, should be directed to the FOIA Office.
