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

Mr. Morisy,

In responding to this FOIA request, one of the program offices requested
that the request be narrowed. Would you be willing to narrow the request
to a specific type of contract? Currently the request is for, "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."

Thank you and we look forward to your response,

Good day, After careful review of your FOIA request, we determined that your request is too broad in scope or did not specifically identify the records which you are seeking.  Records must be described in reasonably sufficient detail to enable government employees who are familiar with the subject area to locate records without placing an unreasonable burden upon the agency.  For this reason, §5.3(b) of the DHS regulations, 6 C.F.R. Part 5, require that you describe the records you are seeking with as much information as possible to ensure that our search can locate them with a reasonable amount of effort.  Whenever possible, a request should include specific information about each record sought, such as the date, title or name, author, recipients, and subject matter of the records, if known, or the DHS component or office you believe created and/or controls the record.  The FOIA does not require an agency to create new records, answer questions posed by requesters, or attempt to interpret a request that does not identify specific records. TSA is unable to perform a search without the solicitation or contract number. Please provide either the solicitation or contact number of the contracts you are seeking. Upon receipt of the required information, you will be advised as to the status of your request. If we do not hear from you within 30 days from the date of this email, we will assume you are no longer interested in this FOIA request, and the case will be administratively closed.  Please be advised that this action is not a denial of your request and will not preclude you from filing other requests in the future. Likewise, since so much time has passed, if you are no longer interested in this request, please feel free to respond back at any time to withdraw your request. Your request has been assigned reference number 2014-TSFO-00106.  Please refer to this identifier in any future correspondence. Sincerely, TSA FOIA Office

From: Federal Emergency Management Agency
