To Whom It May Concern:

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

Earlier this year The Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC) under CIO Dana Deasy was given 30 days to consult with the DOD the department and report back with a list of initial “National Mission Initiatives” for JAIC to start working on. Their deadline was September of this year and have previously announced one of those projects to be Project Maven.

Therefore, I request a copy of all approved National Mission Initiatives.
I am requesting all approved budgets for the National Mission Initiatives.
I am requesting a copy of any approved scope of works.

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

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Freddy Martinez

From: Department of Defense, Office of the Secretary of Defense

This is an appeal under 5 USC 552 (FOIA) for the adequacy in the search for records by the Department. We believe the records are incomplete. For example, project Maven is not included in the "approved JAIC" mission, despite numerous press reports about this program.

Please review and remand for an additional search.

All the best,
