From: Emma Best


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Materials mentioning, describing or generated as a result of Counsel of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency's (CIGIE's) failure to process FOIA requests for two years, as well as the DOJ OIG's apparent assumption of those responsibilities.

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.

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.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

From: Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General

Hello:

Attached is the OIG's acknowledgment of your FOIA request.

Thank you.

From: Emma Best

I'm a member of the news media, as was made clear in my original request. The DOJ has consistently recognized this. You are therefore prohibited from charging me any search fees. I would be delighted to sue over the matter if need be.
