To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the eleven entries submitted to the Directorate of National Intelligence by National Security Agency personnel in 2006 as part of the DNI's "Galileo Awards."

These submissions were disclosed publicly in NSA FOIA Release 56155A. The entries include, but are not limited to, the following three titles, which were noted in the unclassified release(U) EXECMessage-158, "NSA Congratulates 3 Galileo Award Finalists" :

"Standardized Intelligence Reports and Common Distribution to Improve Information Sharing and Protect Sources and Methods"
"Beyond Intelligence Sharing: Sharing the Technology that Drives Intelligence"
''Organizing Physiologically: Frankenstein's Dilemma"

I would like a copy of all eleven of the papers submitted to the DNI as Galileo Awards Entries. Please note that the paper titles of the three selected entries have already been publicly disclosed, and thus a Glomar response nor a blanket national security exemption are not appropriate responses.

For help researching this request, you may reference page 99 of the publicly released documents responding to request 56155A here:


Or you may reference your own files on 56155A.

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 20 business days, as the statute requires.
