This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All CIA regulatory issuances contained in the internal Agency-wide regulatory database located in the Classification Management and Collaboration Group (“CMCG”).
I also request that fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest.
Records responsive to this request are the CIA’s governing documents, which by all rights should be proactively disclosed without requiring a formal request. Despite this, these documents are only released piecemeal as individual requesters request specific records, and by the time those documents are released they often have already been superseded. There is great public interest in the rules the CIA imposes upon itself (and in the rules it does not), and MuckRock will work with other national security and administrative law professionals such as the National Security Archive and National Security Counselors to translate these regulatory issuances into a form easily understood by the general public.
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.
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Dec. 4, 2013. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
