The FOIA, or Freedom of Information Act is defined as a federal freedom of information law that facilitates the full or partial disclosure of information and documents under the control of the United States government that have not yet been released. The FOIA defines which agency records are eligible for disclosure and dictates mandatory procedures for disclosure. The FOIA becomes pertinent in security clearance cases particularly when a person has had their security clearance application denied or their current security clearance revoked. In either case, the United States government has become privy to information that has caused them to deem a person ineligible for security clearance, and under the Freedom of Information Act, the person whose security clearance was denied or revoked has a right to review the investigative file.
