Transparency & Accountability Policy

To further strengthen our commitment to transparency, the 12 Federal Reserve Banks have adopted a common policy for public requests for information. The Transparency and Accountability Policy will be in effect starting January 1, 2024, and simplifies and standardizes our public information request process.

Submit a request

You may submit a public information request electronically via email to the Bank’s Transparency and Accountability Office at Requests must be in the email text (attachments will not be reviewed).

Each request must include the following:

  • The name and address of the person filing the request, and a phone number at which the requestor can be reached during business hours;
  • A sufficient description of the records requested so that Bank staff can identify and locate the records without undue difficulty;
  • The name of any pending litigation to which the request relates, and the court and its location; and
  • The agreement of the requestor to pay the Bank for any fees owed in accordance with the Fee Schedule contained in Appendix A of the Transparency and Accountability Policy, or a request for waiver of such fees (see Sections 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9 of the Transparency and Accountability Policy).
