Fee Category

 

Requesters should submit, along with their written request, a fee payment declaration appropriate for the categories listed below, if fees are expected to exceed the minimum fee threshold of $15.

  • A representative of the media affiliated with (give name of media – television station, newspaper, magazine, etc.) and this request is made as part of news-gathering and not for commercial use.
    I am willing to pay reasonable standard charges for document duplication which exceeds the first 100 pages.
  • Affiliated with an educational or noncommercial scientific institution. This request is made for a scholarly purpose and the records sought are not for commercial use.
    I am willing to pay reasonable standard charges for document duplication which exceeds the first 100 pages.
  • Affiliated with a private business and am seeking information for use in the company's business.
    I am willing to pay all reasonable search, review, and duplication costs associated with processing this request.
  • An individual seeking information for personal use and not for commercial use
    I am willing to pay all fees associated with processing this request up to $(state amount) of the amount which exceeds 2 hours of search effort and duplication of 100 pages.
    If you estimate that the total processing fees will exceed this amount, please inform me prior to initiating a search for responsive records.

(Optional) I request a waiver of fees for this request because disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest, is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the Department of the Navy, and is not primarily in my commercial interest.  Requesters should address both of the statutory requirements in sufficient detail for the USNA to make an informed decision as to whether it can appropriately waive or reduce the fees in question.  In this regard, it is the requester, or the requester through an attorney or other representative, who must demonstrate his entitlement to a fee waiver and not the representative's possible entitlement.
