To Whom It May Concern:

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

Copies of contracts with Booz Allen Hamilton over the past 5 years.
Any final reports generated and delivered by Booz Allen Hamilton to the agency over the past 5 years

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

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.

Good Morning:

I have searched the Forest Service FOIAXpress database and we have no record of a FOIA request with this case number: 2013-FS-H1-03198-F.

In the future, when you request a status of your FOIA requests...it is very important for you to provide all the conversations within the email messages instead of just your side. This will help us determine who is processing your FOIA requests within the Forest Service.

Thank you,

Sara Sullivan
On behalf of the Forest Service
Government Information Specialist

Thank you for correcting the FOIA tracking number. We look forward to an update from the Forest Service on this request.

Thank you.

From: MuckRock

Ms. Sullivan:

Apologies for the confusion. Identical requests were sent to the Department of Agriculture as well as to the Forest Service directly. We received the responsive documents to the Forest Service request on 2013-09-18. Did these documents comprise the entirety of Booz Allen Hamilton contracts held by the Department of Agriculture? If so, this request can be considered complete.

Apologies again for any confusion or frustration.

From: Sullivan, Sara L -FS

These were the ones that the Forest Service had. I can't speak for the whole Department.

Sara

From: MuckRock

Ms. Sullivan:

Understandable. Please coordinate with your colleagues at USDA HQ to determine whether the broader request to USDA for Booz Allen Hamilton contracts has been fulfilled.

Thank you again.

From: Sullivan, Sara L -FS
