Dear Mr. Scroggins and Ms. Olsen,

Thanks for the update. Can you provide any additional info regarding the source of delays on this request, or the estimated delivery date? Please feel free to give me a call at 781-962-8816 if it'd be helpful to discuss the scope of the materials we're requesting.

From: New Mexico Educational Retirement Board

Dear Ms. Rock,

I am responding to your email yesterday requesting any additional info regarding the source of delays on this request. Please be assured that we make every effort to respond promptly to every request. However, we must also ensure that we are diligent and accurate in our reply. Thus, when obtained, all documents and emails must be reviewed. Additionally, we must rely on the state agency that controls the entire state email system to identify and provide the emails requested. As you can imagine, the process takes time.

As to an estimated response date, in our letter of August 1, 2023, we noted that we intend to respond by September 6, 2023.

Thank you for your patience and please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

Respectfully,

[cid:image001.png@01D9C623.0D3F7D80]

Hello Ms. Garcia,

Thank you for the update. Given that it's now been five months since we filed the initial request, are you able to provide an update as to whether you've identified the responsive documents, or what the source of the delay is?

Thank you,

Rebecca

From: New Mexico Educational Retirement Board

Dear Ms. Rock and Ms. Burns,

Thank you for your inquiry and please accept our apologies for the delay.

As Mr. Scroggins noted in his August 3, 2023 email regarding our projected response, we always try to be prompt. But as you might guess, the request references a large number of records. As he said, we must thoroughly review all records to identify and obtain the responsive documents from both external and internal sources. It is a complex and time-consuming process.

I am confident that we will have documents ready to provide on or before the December 6th, 2023, date noted in our recent communication.

Thank you for your continued patience!
Regards,
Renee
