On April 22, 2014, we received your request for the following: copies of
contractual documentation and associated correspondence between ISP and
Harris Corporation from 1/1/04 to 1/1/14

Under the Freedom of Information Act, a public body may extend the time to
respond to a FOIA request by up to five business days for a limited number
of reasons. 5 ILCS 140/3(e).
We are extending the time to respond to your request by five days for the
following reason(s):

X The requested records are stored in whole or in
part at another location(s).

X Responding to the request requires that a
substantial number of specified records be collected.

X The request is couched in categorical terms and requires
that an extensive search be conducted for the records responsive to it.

X In order to determine whether the requested records are
exempt under Section 7 of FOIA or must be redacted in part before they are
disclosed, the documents must be reviewed.

X The Department cannot comply with the request for records
within the five business day time limit without unduly burdening or
interfering with operations.

The public body asserts the following facts in support of the above
reasons for an extension of time:

ISP has requested information from several different work locations, and
if information is located, must review the records for appropriate
exemptions prior to dissemination of any information.
This requires a review of several types of files to obtain the relevant
data.

The Department will respond to your request by May 6, 2014.
