To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Documents reflecting the budgetary contribution of USDA to the Bee Informed Partnership from FY2010 thru FY2015.

Per the Bee Informed Partnership website (http://beeinformed.org/about/), this initiative is sponsored in part by the USDA.

Given that this FOIA is submitted in my capacity as a journalist, I request that I be categorized as a media requester for the purpose of fees. Here is a selection of my published articles on MuckRock:

As the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com and pertains to a matter of considerable public interest, I further request a full waiver of all fees.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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,

Shawn Musgrave

Dear Mr. Musgrave,

Your FOIA request was submitted to the USDA FOIA Service Center. The FOIA Service Center processes FOIA requests on behalf of the Office of the Secretary and Departmental Management’s (“DM”). For a complete listing of DM’s components, please visit http://www.dm.usda.gov/agencies.htm.

Upon review, it appeared that the Office of the Chief Financial Officer would have the responsive records. I routed the request to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer. The Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) recently informed me that that do not have any responsive records to your request. The OCFO suggested that I contact National Institute of Food and Agriculture for the responsive records.

I contacted the FOIA Officer for National Institute of Food and Agriculture to see if they had the responsive records for your request. The FOIA Officer informed me that she received a similar request from you, which was assigned as FOIA Case No. 2015-REE-03564-F. The FOIA Officer for National Institute of Food and Agriculture has responded to you regarding this request.

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact me.

Kind regards,
Patricia Weth
