Dear Mr. Kick,

This email confirms receipt of your attached FOIA request. Your requested was received on April 16, 2019 and assigned tracking number 2019-AMS-00135-F. Please reference this number in any future communications with our office regarding your request.

Pursuant to the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. ยง 552(a)(6)(A)(i), AMS has 20 business days upon receipt of your request to make a determination.

AMS generally processes FOIA requests on a "first-in/first-out" basis. However, the actual processing time will depend upon the complexity of your request, including whether it involves sensitive or voluminous records, business submitter records, extensive searches, and/or multiple consultations both within and outside of the Agency.

We will comply with your request to the fullest extent permissible by law. Any records not subject to an exemption will be forwarded to you promptly upon completion of AMS' search and review process.
