Dear Mr. Jones,

We received your email today in reference to the status of your FOIA request. Please be advised that our office initiated searches of the Office of the Central Foreign Policy Records, Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) and the Office of the Center of Strategic Counterterrorism Communications (R/SCC). The search of the Central Foreign Policy records and ECA has resulted in no responsive records.

The search of the Office of R/SCC has been completed and resulted in the retrieval of a document (s) on May 8, 2015 which requires doclisting and a final review.

Currently, we are experiencing a delay in responding to requests due to the large volume of FOIA and Privacy and litigation requests. We regret any inconvenience that this may have caused you. Please be reassured that we are making every effort to respond to your request and will notify you in writing once this process has been completed as soon as possible.

If you should have any further questions, you may contact the FOIA Status Center at 202-271-8484.
