Dear Mr. King,

This is an interim response to your attached Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, dated November 7, 2014. Your request was received in this office on the same date and assigned FOIA case number 15-F-0288. We ask that you use that number when referring to your request.

At this time, we are unable to make a release determination on your request within the 20-day statutory time period as there are unusual circumstances which impact our ability to quickly process your request. These unusual circumstances are: (a) the need to search for and collect records from several offices geographically separated from this Office, (b) the potential volume of records responsive to your request; and (c) the need to consult with one or more agencies or DoD components having a substantial interest in either the determination or the subject matter of the records.

For these reasons, your request has been placed in our complex processing queue and it will be worked in the order the request was received. As a matter of information, our current administrative workload is approximately 1,633 open requests. I apologize for the anticipated delay in responding to your request; your continued patience is appreciated.

If you are not satisfied with this action, you may petition the Appellate Authority, the Director of Administration, Office of the Secretary of Defense, by writing directly to the OSD/Joint Staff Freedom of Information, ATTN: Appeals Office, 1155 Defense Pentagon, Washington, D.C. 20301-1155; you may also submit your appeal electronically at the following link: http://pal.whs.mil/palMain.aspx. Your appeal should be postmarked within 60 calendar days of the date of this mail, should cite case number 15-F-0288, and should be clearly marked "Freedom of Information Act Appeal.

Respectfully,
Adrianne
