To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the DC Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
your agency's FOIA request log covering 2018, which includes a field showing the subject of each request and a field for the final disposition.
Further, I request that this document be sent in any digital formats in which it exists (such as PDF and Excel). Under the terms of the E-FOIA Amendments of 1996, Section 5, if a document exists in electronic format, it must be released in that format upon request.
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.
Thank you for your assistance,
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following DC Freedom of Information Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on Feb. 15, 2019. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
This is in response to your request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) received by the Commission on March 7, 2019, for a copy of "your agency's FOIA request log covering 2018, which includes a field showing the subject of each request and a field for the final disposition." Please be advised that while the Commission does maintain FOIA request logs, the logs do not contain all of the data elements you have requested. As the FOIA does not require an agency to create records in response to a request, we are providing the requested logs with only the information recorded by the Commission in its ordinary course of business, that is we are not creating a new record which would contain the additional fields that you have designated as minimally required.
If you are not satisfied with my response to this request, you may administratively appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy (OIP), United States Department of Justice, Suite 11050, 1425 New York Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20530-0001, or you may submit an appeal through OIP's eFOIA portal at http://www.justice.gov/oip/efoia-portal.html. Please note that OIP is in the process of transitioning from its current eFOIA portal to the portal on FOIAonline. Please visit the link above for instructions for submitting an appeal electronically. Your appeal must be postmarked or electronically transmitted within 60 days of the date of my response to your request. If you submit your appeal by mail, both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked Freedom of Information Act Appeal.
