To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I request the Annual reports to Congress for the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) from 1975 - 2007.

CFIUS has been in operation since President Ford's Executive Order 11858 in 1975. However, the annual reports to Congress for CFIUS are available on the Department of the Treasury Web site only from 2008 - present, and previous years were not made available through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP).

I request a FOIA fee waiver based on my affiliation as a librarian with Stanford University Library.

I can be contacted if necessary to discuss any aspect of my request via phone ((650) 862-9871) or email (jrjacobs@stanford.edu).

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
