To Whom It May Concern:

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

This is a request to the Department of Homeland Security for all documents regarding the development and award of the recent $12.8 million Transit Security Grant to San Francisco's Bay Area Rapid Transit System for security upgrades to the Transbay Tube. In the fulfillment of this request, regardless of outcome, please include processing notes.

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.

Good Afternoon Ms. Akers-Healy,

This email is regarding your FOIA request, FEMA 2013-FEFO-00957. Please be advised that the Disclosure Branch has a multi-tiered FOIA review process. The first-line processor reviews the documents and determines the releasability. Then, the first-line processor’s review determination is referred to the assigned team leader for review. If the team leader has no matters to amend, the review is referred to FEMA’s Office of Chief Counsel (OCC) for legal review, to ensure compliance with the FOIA statute and applicable Department of Homeland Security regulations. If OCC has no matters to amend, the final review determination is routed to the Disclosure Branch Chief for signature and final release.
If at any time during this review process there is a question with the release determination, the review process starts at the beginning, i.e., the documents are returned to the first-line processor to address the concerns, recommendations, and modifications identified during the team leader and OCC reviews. After the concerns, recommendations, and modifications are addressed by the first-line processor, the corrected release determination is then submitted for concurrence by the team leader for final signature of the Disclosure Branch Chief.
We certainly understand the importance of your request and are working diligently to provide the information you have requested. Thank you for your continued patience.
Should you have any further questions regarding your request, please reference your request number in an e-mail to FEMA-FOIA@dhs.gov, or you may call the Chief FOIA Officer, Terry Cochran at (202) 212-2308.
