Dear Mr. Martinez,
I have reached out to the Finance Division and have not yet heard back as to whether there are responsive records for your request. I will be in touch with you either way on or before October 31, 2018.
I had previously sent a follow up that we can consider this request closed. I see the documents I wanted were released responsive to a separate FOIA request.
Thanks for your time.
Received. Thank you.
