* Please include Processing Notes in your search.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Prior to our responding to your request, can you please clarify what you mean by Processing Notes? See highlighted sentence below
In other requests "processing notes" have been interpreted as "administrative tracking files".
Essentially, I'm asking for emails, email threads and any other data corresponding to these requests. With all associated metadata.
Hope that's clearer? Also, what does your department call such data?
Thanks for the help you're providing. Looking forward to hearing back from you.
Thank you for the clarification, that is what I assumed but just wanted to be sure before we provided you with materials that you may not have wanted. We refer to these items administrative materials to coordinate/respond to the PDR and it would include our internal communications with the department, communications with the requestor, etc.

The appropriate address for this request is:
DEPT MR 24986
