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.
Good Morning Ms. Best,
As is your request is "unreasonably described" and "unreasonably burdensome". Currently, your request requires a search for 50 keywords, across multiple offices with a year and a half timeframe related to email correspondence. The FOIA was not intended to allow requesters to conduct "fishing expeditions" through agency files. We are happy to work with you to negotiate narrowing the scope such as, limiting the number of keywords, timeframe, or narrowing to specific individuals. If we cannot come to an agreement on a narrowed scope, NGA will have to deny your FOIA request on the bases of your request being improper. Thank you for your time. We look forward to working with you.
