To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the 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,
The NIH FOIA Office regularly posts the NIH FOIA Log on the following webpage: https://www.nih.gov/institutes-nih/nih-office-director/office-communications-public-liaison/freedom-information-act-office/nih-foia-log
Please refer to this webpage as it contains the FOIA Log in the format which is required by HHS FOIA policy. You have requested for a record to be generated with a "Final Resolution" field to be added, but this would require our office to "create a record" which is not allowed under the FOIA. The FOIA is intended for existing records to be provided to the public by government agencies, and as such, we cannot create a new record in response to a FOIA request.
Please confirm that you wish to withdraw your NIH FOIA request because the NIH FOIA log for FY 2018 is already publicly available at the link provided to you above.
