IMPORTANT INFORMATION FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA)
SOLICITATION AND CONTRACTS FOIA AND POSTING NOTICE
Any award(s) resulting from issuance of this solicitation or quote may be posted in the DeCA Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) electronic reading room at www.commissaries.com. The posting will contain the total contract award amount, as well as any awarded individual contract line item pricing (CLIN and Sub-CLIN). Unexercised option prices will not be published.
In compliance with the provisions of Executive Order 12600, the contract holder may identify to the agency FOIA Officer (email@example.com), within 21 calendar days of the contract award date, any information contained in the contract that it deems to be confidential commercial information. The FOIA officer will review the submission and contact the contract holder with a decision. Failure to identify any such information will be interpreted by the Agency as the contract holder having no such information to identify or withhold from posting in the FOIA electronic reading room.
The postings typically take place at a minimum of two distinct points; upon the initial award of the contract and then again after the final option period has been exercised. However, should a FOIA request for the contract be received in the interim, the contract may be reposted including any awarded contract pricing up to the date of the FOIA request. Unexercised option prices will not be published.
This action is being taken to ensure contract award information is available to the general public, as it was in the past, pursuant to the President’s January 21, 2009 memorandum regarding the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
