Dear FOIA Officer:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request your agency's FOIA request log for fiscal year 2019. Please include fields showing the FOIA number, request date, receipt date, completion date, status, requester name, requester organization, and the subject of the request.

Further, I request that these records be sent in any digital formats in which they exists (both Excel and PDF, for example). Under the terms of the E-FOIA Amendments of 1996, Section 5, if a document exists in electronic format, it must be released in that format upon request.

As a freelance journalist, I expect to be placed in your news media category.

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 for your assistance.

Good Afternoon,
This letter acknowledges your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request dated August 26, 2020.  Your request has been logged in under control number 2020-002230. Please use this control number in all subsequent correspondence concerning your request.
In your letter you’ve requested the following:
I hereby request your agency's FOIA request log for fiscal year 2019. Please include fields showing the FOIA number, request date, receipt date, completion date, status, requester name, requester organization, and the subject of the request.
We have classified you as a representative of the 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 Complex 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. (mailto:BLM_WO_FOIA@blm.gov)
