14 CFR 1206.702 - Waiver or reduction of fees.

§ 1206.702 Waiver or reduction of fees.
The burden is always on the requester to provide the evidence to qualify him/her for a fee waiver or reduction.
(a) NASA shall furnish documents without charge or at reduced charges in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(4)(A)(iii), provided that:
(1) Disclosure of the information is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government and
(2) It is not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester.
(b) Where these two statutory requirements are satisfied, based upon information supplied by the requester or otherwise made known to NASA, the FOIA fee shall be waived or reduced. Where one or both of these requirements is not satisfied, a fee waiver or reduction is not warranted under the statute.
(c) In determining whether disclosure is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government, the following considerations shall be applied:
(1) Whether the subject of the requested records concerns “the operations or activities of the government”;
(2) Whether the disclosure is “likely to contribute” to an understanding of government operations or activities;
(3) Whether disclosure of the requested information will contribute to “public understanding”; and
(4) Whether the disclosure is likely to contribute “significantly” to public understanding of government operations or activities.
(d) In determining whether disclosure of the information “is not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester,” the following consideration shall be applied:
(1) Whether the requester has a commercial interest that would be furthered by the requested disclosure; and if so,
(2) Whether the magnitude of the identified commercial interest of the requester is sufficiently large, in comparison with the public interest in disclosure, that disclosure is “primarily in the commercial interest of the requester.”
