From: Bureau of Land Management

Good afternoon Mr. Tobias,

This letter acknowledges your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
dated March 1, 2018. Your request has been logged in under control number
2019-01060. Please use this control number in all subsequent correspondence
concerning your request.

In your letter you’ve requested the following:

"All written or electronic communications, including email attachments,
between Bureau of Land Management official Katherine Benedetto and Robert
"Bob" Comer (bob.comer@nortonrosefulbright.com) of the lobbying firm Norton
Rose Fulbright. This request seeks documents produced between July 1, 2017
and the date this request is processed."

We have classified you as a representative of the news media. As such, we
may charge you for some of our duplication costs, but we will not charge
you for our search or review costs; you also are entitled to up to 100
pages of photocopies (or an equivalent volume) for free. See 43 C.F.R. §
2.39. If, after taking into consideration your fee category entitlements,
our processing costs are less than $50.00, we will not bill you because the
cost of collection would be greater than the fee collected. See 43 C.F.R. §
2.49(a)(1). We do not anticipate any charges for the cost of processing
this request.

We use Multitrack Processing to process FOIA requests. The Simple track is
for requests that can be processed in one to five workdays. The Normal
track is for requests that can be processed in six to twenty workdays. The
Complex track is for requests that can be processed in twenty-one to sixty
workdays. The Exceptional/Voluminous track is for requests requiring more
than sixty workdays for processing. The Expedited track is for requests
that have been granted expedited processing. Within each track, requests
are usually processed on a first-in, first-out basis.

This request falls into the *Normal *track.

Even though we normally process requests on a first-in, first-out basis,
because of the nature of your request and the circumstances surrounding
this request, we will prioritize and process your request as the records
become available.

If you have any questions, please contact us at BLM_WO_FOIA@blm.gov or
202-912-7650. Thank you for your interest in public lands and in programs
and activities of the BLM.
