Taylor,

Thanks for reaching out regarding your FOIA request, 18-FI-HQ-01411. The initial eDiscovery data pull took place on 5/1/18. This collected all emails for the two custodians in the stated timeframe. The next step is to conduct a keyword search to limit these results to only those containing one of the identified search terms. As of today, there are no available scheduling slots for the keyword search. As soon as there are available slots, the keyword search will be scheduled and I will be notified of the date, which I can pass along to you. Once the keyword search has been run, any items that match the custodian/date range/keyword combination will be consolidated and sent to me for review. I'll then work to prepare the final package for release to you as soon as possible.
Best,
