Re: Freedom of Information Act Request No. EPA-HQ-2018-005579
Good evening,
This correspondence concerns the above-referenced Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, received by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on March 19th, 2018, in which you requested "all communications, to and from, Richard Pinedo."
Your request does not reasonably describe the records you are seeking in a way that will permit EPA employees to identify and locate them. The Agency cannot conduct an email search without a list of custodians and date range to search.
EPA’s FOIA regulations state:
“Whenever possible, your request should include specific information about each record sought, such as the date, title or name, author, recipient, and subject matter. If known, you should include any file designations or descriptions for the records that you want. The more specific you are about the records or type of records that you want, the more likely EPA will be able to identify and locate records responsive to your request.” 40 C.F.R. § 2.102(c).

We would like to provide you the opportunity to clarify the records that you are seeking so that EPA can process your request.  As indicated in 40 C.F.R. § 2.102(c), please include any specific information about the records you seek, including time period, authors, or a more detailed description of the records’ subject matter. Additionally, the FOIA does not require federal agencies to respond to questions so please consider that as you are modifying your request.
Please contact me at sandfoss.kristina@epa.gov or 202-564-7177 with clarification or if you would like to discuss your request. (mailto:sandfoss.kristina@epa.gov)
Thank you for your interest in the EPA and have a great day!
