Good morning Sir

This email is in response your FOIA request for all Qui Tam investigations
closed between 1 Jan 2010 and the date of your request (6 April 2013).
Please be advised that we have the largest backlog in the Air Force and it is
taking us a considerable amount of time to process our request due to the
complex nature of information we have to process to include the volume of
information we have to process. It can take us anywhere between 6 months to a
year to process your request if not longer. We are trying as hard as we can
to process all of our requests as quickly as possible on a first in and first
out basis. Once we conduct our research we will be in a position to determine
how many cases are responsive to your request. At that point we will be in a
position to tell you how many records are involved. Your request can involve
as many as 1000 to 10000 records if you are seeking the Report of
Investigations. If you were to accept the Title Page and Synopsis this could
drastically reduce the amount of pages involves and possibly speed up the
processing of your request.

I apologize for the delay in contacting you.

Good Morning Mr. Morisy,

We have recently gone through a change in management and came across your 6
April 2013 FOIA request (FOIA #2013-04170-F). Were you in receipt of our
last correspondence to you? If so, please keep in mind that there may be
multiple records involved in the scope of your request, therefore, you will
need to narrow your scope. If you were to accept the Title Page and
Synopsis, this could drastically reduce the amount of pages involved and
possibly speed up the processing of your request. Please advise how you
would like us to handle the scope of your request.

Our office must receive the above information no later than 10 business days
from the date of this letter otherwise; we will administratively close your
request.
