(x) The requested records require the collection of a substantial
number of specified records;

( ) The request is couched in categorical terms and requires an
extensive search for the records responsive to it;

( ) The requested records have not been located in the course of routine search and additional efforts are being made to locate them;

( ) The requested records require examination and evaluation by personnel having the necessary competence and discretion to determine if they are exempt from disclosure or should be revealed only with appropriate deletions;

( ) The request for records cannot be complied by the public body within the time limits prescribed by the Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140/3(c), without unduly burdening or interfering with the operations of the public body;

( ) There is a need for consultation, which shall be conducted with all practicable speed, with another public body or among two or more components of any public body having a substantial interest in the determination or in the subject matter of the request.
