Dear Mr. Triplett,

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
dated September
10, 2014, seeking information regarding the 1033 equipment surplus program.

The Southeast Region Refuges Law Enforcement Office has reviewed their
files. In accordance with 43 CFR 2, attached is all pertinent information
that we found in these files. After reviewing our files it was determined
that our Refuges Law Enforcement Office does not have any documents
pertaining to a MOU or MOA.

Our Headquarters Office of Law Enforcement are currently reviewing their
files and will respond directly to you concerning any additional documents
pertaining to this request.

Should you consider any parts of this response to be a denial, you may
appeal this to the FOIA Appeals Officer. The FOIA Appeals Officer must
receive your FOIA appeal no later than 30 workdays from the date of this
final letter responding to your FOIA request. Appeals arriving or
delivered after 5 p.m. E.T., Monday through Friday, will be deemed received
on the next workday. Your appeal must be in writing and addressed to:

Freedom of Information Act Appeals Officer
U.S. Department of the Interior
Office of the Solicitor
1849 C Street, NW, MS 6556
Washington, D.C. 20240

You must include with your appeal copies of all correspondence between you
and the Fish and Wildlife Service concerning your FOIA request, including a
copy of your original FOIA request and this denial letter. Failure to
include this documentation with your appeal will result in the Department’s
rejection of your appeal. The appeal should be marked, both on the
envelope and the face of the letter, with the legend, “FREEDOM OF
INFORMATION APPEAL.” Your letter should include in as much detail as
possible any reason(s) why you believe the Fish and Wildlife Service’s
response is in error.

For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law
enforcement and national security records from the requirements of the
FOIA. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(c) (2006 & Supp. IV (2010). This response is
limited to those records that are subject to the requirements of the FOIA.
This is a standard notification that is given to all our requesters and
should not be taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not,
exist.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thanks
