One part of the CIA is called the Engineering Development Group (EDG), which is part of the Applied Engineering Division. EDG produces white papers, some of which are classified as "unclassified."

My request concerns documents produced by the EDG.

In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a journalist writing for Motherboard, VICE's technology and science site, and that this request is being made as part of news gathering.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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.
