Dear Mr. Hendricks,
The CBP FOIA Office has assigned your FOIA request to the CBP Procurement Directorate for processing. Attached please find the initial acknowledgement letter of your request.

I am attempting to identify any responsive records the agency may have, but the request is somewhat vague and I need additional information in order to locate the records. For example, can you provide an approximate date or year in which CBP may have purchased this equipment? Can you provide any specific contract or order numbers? Can you provide the identity of any vendors that may have sold the equipment to CBP?

I refer you to two online databases that may help with your research now and in the future (USAspending.gov<https://www.usaspending.gov/Pages/default.aspx> and Federal Procurement Data System - Next Generation<https://www.fpds.gov/fpdsng_cms/index.php/en/>). Both of these sites contain a wealth of information about federal government transactions, and they may help you narrow or be more specific in this and any future FOIA request.

I look forward to assisting you and hearing back from you with additional information that may help identify the records you seek.

Thank you,

Michael C. Amaral
