FOI Request

5 oldest FOIA requests (Defense Contract Management Agency)

Requested by jasonsmathers on Dec. 9, 2010 for the Defense Contract Management Agency of United States of America and fufilled on Sept. 12, 2013

Status: Completed


From Jason Smathers on Dec. 8, 2010:

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All records referencing the five oldest FOIA and Privacy Act requests which are still being processed that contain remarks, comments, notes, explanations, etc. made by your personnel or contractors about the processing of these requests (and appeals, if appropriate), the invocation of exemptions, or related matters. This is to include any analysts' notes made during the processing of the requests, any standard worksheets completed by the analysts, any justifications for exemption invocations or other supporting documentation provided to the Appeals Authority, and any correspondence referencing the requests, including tasking orders, emails, and coordination documentation. However, any records previously released to the original requesters in unredacted form may be excluded from this request. Additionally, please provide the initial request letters for the 5 oldest open FOIA/PA requests.

When processing this request, please note that the D.C. Circuit has previously held that agencies have a duty to construe the subject material of FOIA requests liberally to ensure responsive records are not overlooked. See Nation Magazine, Washington Bureau v. U.S. Customs Service, 71 F.3d 885, 890 (D.C. Cir. 1995). Accordingly, you are hereby instructed that the term “record” includes, but is not limited to: 1) all email communications to or from any individual within your agency; 2) memoranda; 3) inter-agency communications; 4) sound recordings; 5) tape recordings; 6) video or film recordings; 7) photographs; 8) notes; 9) notebooks; 10) indices; 11) jottings; 12) message slips; 13) letters or correspondence; 14) telexes; 15) telegrams; 16) facsimile transmissions; 17) statements; 18) policies; 19) manuals or binders; 20) books; 21) handbooks; 22) business records; 23) personnel records; 24) ledgers; 25) notices; 26) warnings; 27) affidavits; 28) declarations under penalty of perjury; 29) unsworn statements; 30) reports; 31) diaries; or 32) calendars, regardless of whether they are handwritten, printed, typed, mechanically or electronically recorded or reproduced on any medium capable of conveying an image, such as paper, CDs, DVDs, or diskettes.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Jason Smathers

Sir,

The Defense Contract Management Agency has received your attached FOIA
request. For tracking purposes, I have assigned control number 11-037.
Please refer to that control number in any future correspondence. We process
FOIA requests in the order in which they are received; therefore, your
request is in our que according to control number.

Should you have any questions regarding your request, please feel free to
contact me.

From Jason Smathers on March 29, 2011:

Mr. Smathers,
This is to notify you that we have determined that your request for fee
waiver must be further justified by you. Unless we hear back from you, your
fee category has been determined to be the "Other" category, whereby the
first two hours are free of charge as well as the first 100 pages of copy
reproduction.

An estimate for assessable fees is currently being prepared and we will let
you know our anticipated costs prior to fulfilling your request, as
requested.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me
or Kim Turner at 804-416-9129.

From Jason Smathers on April 7, 2011:

I am a member of the news media. I will be taking the information you provide and turning that information into a unique product using my editorial skills. I have the ability and a successful track record of publishing my work to an audience of the general public. I have an agreement with MuckRock.com to write articles concerning FOIA issues which will be published on their website. Furthermore, I have already written about Freedom of Information and MuckRock.com has published that article in the past to further demonstrate that news media is the appropriate fee category.

The Defense Contract Management Agency has failed to meet a statutory deadline in processing this request and is no longer able to charge any fees for searching and is no longer able to charge duplication fees for news media requesters per the 2007 amendments to the FOIA.

We are hereby requesting a waiver of all fees in accordance with our status as a representative of the news media. I have an agreement to publish FOIA related stories with MuckRock.com, MuckRock.com has the ability to disseminate information on a wide scale, and intends to use information obtained through FOIA in original works. According to 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(4)(A)(ii), codifying the ruling of Nat’l Security Archive v. Dep’t of Defense, 880 F.2d 1381 (D.C. Cir. 1989),

the term ‘a representative of the news media’ means any person or entity that gathers information of potential interest to a segment of the public, uses its editorial skills to turn the raw materials into a distinct work, and distributes that work to an audience

I have clear intent to “publish[ ] or otherwise disseminate[ ] information to the public.” Id. at 1386 (quoting the following legislative history: 1) “It is critical that the phrase ‘representative of the news media’ be broadly interpreted if the act is to work as expected. . . . In fact, any person or organization which regularly publishes or disseminates information to the public . . . should qualify for waivers as a ‘representative of the news media.’” 132 Cong. Rec. S14298 (daily ed. Sept. 30, 1986) (emphasis in original quotation); 2) “A request by a reporter or other person affiliated with a newspaper, magazine, television or radio station, or other entity that is in the business of publishing or otherwise disseminating information to the public qualifies under this provision.” 132 Cong. Rec. H9463 (Oct. 8, 1986) (emphasis in original quotation)). MuckROck.com, where the information received through our FOIA requests will be posted for all to review, can be accessed at http://www.MuckRock.com. In addition, I also intend to use information obtained through this FOIA in a unique work using editorial skills to be published on MuckRock.com. I personally have already published information received through FOIA in this manner. Therefore, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act and relevant case law, I should be considered a representative of the news media. Similarly, our request for a public interest fee waiver should be granted, for the reasons elucidated below.

There can be no question that the information sought would contribute to the public’s understanding of government operations or activities and is in the public interest. FOIA is one of the key mechanisms by which the American public can access government information, but very little is known about the behind-the-scenes processing of requests, especially in such agencies as yours. What factors are considered and what weight is assigned them will significantly contribute to the public’s understanding of government operations and activities, and by analyzing this representative sampling of FOIA requests I will be able to synthesize this information into a form that current and future FOIA requesters will find useful.

In addition, with respect to the specific requirement that I must demonstrate an expertise in the subject area in order to satisfy the fee waiver criterion that disclosure of the requested information must contribute to the understanding of the public at large, I personally have studied FOIA requests and agency responses, have written about them and this writing has been published to the general public.

 
From Defense Contract Management Agency on April 18, 2011:

Mr. Smathers,
We have determined that the placement of your request in the "Other" fee
category is consistent with regulatory criteria and the treatment afforded
by other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies and components. While the
Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) is committed to providing the
fullest and timeliest possible disclosure of records under the FOIA, we are
still susceptible to challenges such as surges in high volume/complex
requests, staffing issues, etc.

Your request for information pertaining to the five oldest FOIA and Privacy
Act requests being processed by this agency
involves the need to search for and collect the requested records from
offices in various physical locations separate from the office processing
the request. This factor establishes “unusual circumstances” which is a
justifiable reason for a delay in processing time. On the surface, your
request did not appear to be quite so involved. When
this became obvious, you were notified that an estimate for assessable
search fees was being prepared. We have estimated the search time to be 12
hours for a total of $ 440 (assessed for 10 hours effort, the first 2
granted without charge). We expect to make available the records responsive
to your request by August of 2011. This projection is based on our ongoing
progress toward reducing the current backlog of pending FOIA requests.

Once you have established a willingness to pay assessable fees, we will
continue with the processing of your request. If you wish to narrow the
scope of your request, this could significantly reduce processing fees and
time. We welcome the opportunity to discuss arranging an alternative time
frame for processing the request or a modified request.

From Jason Smathers on April 19, 2011:

Donna V. Williamson,

This is a FOIA appeal. You provided me with an adverse determination but did not provide me with the proper details to file an appeal, in violation of the FOIA. Please ensure this FOIA appeal reaches the appeal authority. Please confirm when this appeal is accepted.

On December 9, 2010 I submitted a FOIA request to the Defense Contract Management Agency. On December 15, 2010 Kimberly Turner responded and assigned the request control number 11-037.

On March 29, 2011 Donna V. Williamson informed me that I was placed in the fee category “other.” I responded to this with a complete explanation as to why search fees are inappropriate due to a failure to meet the 20 day time limit (see 5 USC 522(a)(4)(A)(viii)). I appeal the adverse determination of assigning my request to the “other” fee category. I should be assigned to the news media fee category. I stand upon the information provided in my April 7, 2011 response which justifies the news media fee category.

"a representative of the news media is, in essence, a person or entity that gathers information of potential interest to a segment of the public, uses its editorial skills to turn the raw materials into a distinct work, and distributes that work to an audience."
I gather information of potential interest to a segment of the public, namely information concerning the processing of FOIA requests. The information requested is specifically for this news gathering purpose.

I use my editorial skills to turn this material into a distinct work and plan to do so with the information requested in this FOAI request. You can view two examples of taking raw data and turning them into a distinct product using editorial skills:
http://www.muckrock.com/blog/tick-tick-tick-running-the-clock-down-on-fees/
http://www.muckrock.com/blog/requestors-voice-in-bullhead-city-arizona-freedom-of-information-reform-slow-going/

These examples also show that my work is distributed to an audience. I have an agreement with MuckRock to provide news stories concerning the Freedom of Information Act. I plan to do the same with the information received as a result of this FOIA request.

Furthermore, Donna V. Williamson informed me of “unusual circumstances” on April 18, 2011. This is well after the 20 day limit to inform a requester of unusual circumstances set in the FOIA. Therefore 5 USC 522(a)(4)(A)(viii) applies and the ability to charge fees should be subject to this clause in the FOIA.

Please process this request by billing according to the news media fee category and by limiting fees per 5 USC 522(a)(4)(A)(viii).

Regards,
Jason Smathers

From Donna V. Williamson on Oct. 17, 2011:

Mr. Smathers,
I am writing to provide status on your FOIA request #11-037 (pertaining to
the oldest five DCMA FOIA requests). Unfortunately, the oldest five FOIAs
are in our International Division where, as you can imagine, we have
extremely complex FOIA matters requiring extensions to processing times. It
goes without saying that our oldest five pending FOIA actions are highly
complex in nature and involve a number of offices/individuals. Therefore,
your request is in our complex processing queue.

We strive to keep our FOIA actions moving and will continue to process your
request in the order in which it was received, as required under the FOIA.
If, in the meantime, you have any questions or concerns, please do not
hesitate to contact me.

From Jason Smathers to Defense Contract Management Agency <Donna.Williamson@dcma.mil> on Nov. 29, 2011:

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Dec. 9, 2010. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.

Thank you for your help.

 
From "Williamson, Donna V." <Donna.Williamson@dcma.mil> to Jason Smathers on Dec. 1, 2011:

Mr. Smathers,
Because documents had to be gathered from various offices and individuals throughout the Agency, we established a collaboration folder and the documents are being searched for and copied to that folder. I have asked our International FOIA Manager to obtain a percentage of completion from each individual and will have a better idea once she has gotten back with me. Of course, the review process will take additional time.

As mentioned in my previous correspondence, because this request is in our complex queue and is being worked in the order in which it was received, the delay is inevitable. Please feel free to inquire at any time on the status of your request.
Thank you,

I am writing to update you on the status of your FOIA request. As of today, your request #11-037 is now number one in our processing queue. I have begun working on redactions to the responsive records and can provide you with interim responses if you would like; however, I am being pulled off working on this FOIA for a few weeks for another large project our department has been tasked with that lends priority. Upon completion of the newly assigned task, I will resume redacting and processing your request. Be advised that will be no sooner than the end of March.

Should you have any questions regarding this status update, feel free to contact me.

I wanted to let you know that I am now resuming my FOIA work. As your request is number one in my queue, I will be processing it first. I do want to let you know that there are a voluminous number of records to review and redact, so it will still take some additional time.

There are a voluminous amount of records responsive to your request that must be redacted, as you have been advised in the past. Your request is approximately 80 percent finished.

From Williamson, Donna V. to Jason Smathers on May 20, 2013:

Mr. Smathers,
I am writing with regard to the status of your ongoing FOIA request with DCMA; two interim releases have been provided to you and we are currently working on the third of five anticipated releases. We wish we could accommodate all of our requesters in a timely fashion, but unfortunately due to the complexities and geographical locations where the responsive documents reside, we have not been able to do so. In the last few months, DCMA has experienced a sizeable increase in the number of incoming FOIA requests which puts us at a further disadvantage in our attempts to decrease our backlog. We are simply not staffed to handle the current workload and with the upcoming furlough, which will result in 4-day workweeks for the remainder of this fiscal year, I am looking for potential approaches to handling the workload.

As a result, I am contacting you to inquire about your need for the balance of the information requested, which is for administrative records pertaining to the 3rd/4th/5th oldest FOIA action. While you are certainly entitled to continue to seek the balance of the requested records, I am hoping that the information provided to you on the first two releases gave you some insight into the complexities we are up against. Additionally, I hope you realize that we sincerely strive to promote government transparency and accountability and because of this, we would certainly not want to misuse our time on actions that have lost their significance or have been overcome by events.

I realize Ms. Turner, the FOIA analyst handling your request, has made a similar inquiry; however, given the additional length of time and the current circumstances, I thought I could candidly reach out to you in the event you might consider withdrawing your request, should your needs have changed.

Please advise how you wish for us to proceed.

 
From Williamson, Donna V. to Jason Smathers on May 30, 2013:

Mr. Smathers,
I noticed on your website that this case indicates closure as of May 20, 2013, the date of my email below. Based on this alone, we do not want to make the assumption that it is your intention to withdraw the balance of your request. For the record and since your request is at the top of our queue, it would be greatly appreciated if you can provide a response at your earliest convenience so we can prioritize our workload.

Respectfully,

 
From Williamson, Donna V. to Jason Smathers on June 6, 2013:

Mr. Smathers,
Since your website indicates referenced FOIA action was closed as of May
20, 2013, if I do not hear from you by June 13, 2013, DCMA will formally
close out this FOIA action.
Respectfully,

 
From Jason Smathers to Defense Contract Management Agency on June 6, 2013:

Please do not close the request, it was incorrectly marked on the website. Thanks!

I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Dec. 9, 2010. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.

Thank you for your help.

 
From Williamson, Donna V. to Jason Smathers on July 10, 2013:

Mr. Smathers,
This is to inform you that review of the responsive documents for the third interim response have been completed and once the letter is signed by the Initial Denial Authority (IDA) the response will be sent out. Due to the furlough and resulting impact on schedules, it may be early next week before the package is dispatched. Additionally, review of the responsive documents for the fourth interim response is nearly complete and that response should go out in the next week to ten days, leaving only one final response to be completed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Respectfully,
