Hello,

Thank you for your quick response. The followup below errantly labeled this request as FOIL #14-163, which pertained to your agency's FOIL rules and regulations and which your agency did answer earlier this month.

The present FOIL request, which per our records has never been answered or acknowledged by OCFS , pertains to a log of FOIL requests received by OCFS. See the original communication below from December 19, 2014, which was sent to info@ocfs.ny.gov, and the followup sent to the same email address on January 6, 2015.

Please confirm receipt of the present FOIL request.

Thank you.

Mr. Lesser,

I received this email from you this morning:

“This is a follow up to a previous request:

Hello —

Once again, per our records, the present request for the FOIL log maintained by OCFS has never been acknowledged or completed. Please advise.

Thank you.”

I have forwarded the response about FOIL 14-162 that I sent you on January 20. I see that you sent another email on January 21, but I thought maybe you had missed the one I sent you the day before since it references the same FOIL request. You’ll notice that I have sent this to all of the email addresses from which you have sent correspondence to make sure you receive this.
Thanks,
Casey

Hello,

Per my records, FOIL #14-162 pertains to the employee listing for OCFS. The present FOIL request is for the log maintained by OCFS of FOIL requests received for the past three (3) years, or as far back as such a log is maintained. Per our records, this FOIL request for the FOIL log of OCFS has never been acknowledged.

Please advise.

Thank you.

From: McNulty, Casey (OCFS)

Mr. Lesser,

Because you sent both requests – for a listing of every officer/employee of OCFS, and for a log of all requests for agency records under the Freedom of Information Law received over the past three years – on the same day at the same time, FOIL #14-162 combines both of these requests.
Best,
Casey
