The memorandum of understanding (MOU) or memorandum of agreement (MOA) between NYPD and the FBI for the Joint Terrorism Task Force.

To Whom It May Concern:

This is an appeal for a rejection of 2013-PL-8224 (rejection letter attached). Lieutenant Mantellino asserts that “this unit is unable to locate records responsive to your request based on the information provided.”

The provided information is more than adequate to locate the requested information under FOIL. Specifically, I request the memorandum of understanding (MOU) or memorandum of agreement (MOA) between NYPD and the FBI for the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).

It is well established that NYPD and the FBI created the first Joint Terrorism Task Force in 1980. Such relationships require MOU/MOA-type agreements to formalize and flesh out the relationship between the NYPD and FBI where the JTTF is concerned. This is a routine request.

Please release the requested documents per your obligations under FOIL.

Respectfully,

Shawn Musgrave

From: New York City Police Department

A letter stating that the request appeal has been rejected.
