2. The current engineer certification/qualification plan submitted to and approved by FRA in accordance with 49 CFR 240 (or predecessor regulations).

Greetings SFRTA records officials,

This request was originally submitted on your online request form in October. I attempted to reach you by telephone on December 2nd, and received a voicemail back on December 4th indicating the request could not be located, after which I re-submitted the request via the online form. I have yet to receive any acknowledgement that this request had been received by your agency. Having found this email address on one of your online documents, I am attempting to follow up via a different means. Please find the text of the request below. I look forward to hearing from you when you are in receipt of this request.

Thank you,

Joseph Durso
