Mr. Craven,

I have contacted the Case Analyst and requested an estimated completion date for your case. The Analyst will contact the bureaus doing the searches and the individuals reviewing the material. This will take some time because each case is different. The search and review time varies. The time depends on the complexity of information requested and the time it takes to review the material.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have further concerns or any questions regarding any FOIA-related matter, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center (FRSC) at (202) 261-8484, or fax us at (202) 261-8582 or send an e-mail to foiastatus@state.gov

Mr. Craven - It has been determined that as it currently stands, the subject request for "any email correspondence from state.gov email accounts containing the words "North Korea" and "Rodman" will require more time to conduct and complete an extensive search of email correspondence. Consequently, the assigned office processing your request has asked whether you would be amenable to narrowing the scope of the request to the Department of State's Foreign Policy file records. If you are amenable to this course of action, the September estimated completion date is more attainable. Please let this office know your decision. Thank you.

From: Department of State

A copy of documents responsive to the request.

From: Department of State

A cover letter granting the request and outlining any exempted materials, if any.
